Commissioners discuss allocation of ARPA funds

County receives $9.7 million from American Rescue Plan Act

COLFAX — The Whitman County Commissioners met for the Tuesday, Feb. 20, 9 a.m., workshop to discuss the emergency reserve fund transfer and the evaluation of how America Rescue Plan Act Funds (ARPA) can be allocated from the $9,732,115 they received.

Chief Finance Administrator Jessica Jensema presented and discussed both Emergency Reserve Funds and what could potentially qualify for receiving the ARPA funds with the commissioners.

Jensema said that several years ago, the commissioners established the emergency reserve funds and have not transferred money into them for multiple years.
