NACo Webinar: Leveraging ARPA Funds to Prevent Violent Crime

Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) for a webinar, “Leveraging ARPA Funds to Prevent Violent Crime,” on May 11, 2–3 PM EST.

Counties are using resources from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to fund violence prevention and crime reduction programs in their communities. Counties have been using this funding to support community-based organizations and violence interrupters, as well as youth-centered wellness groups and hospital-linked intervention programs. Join NACo for a webinar that will feature a discussion with county leaders on how they have been using ARPA funds to reduce violence and strengthen communities.

As previously reported on Conduit Street, the US Department of the Treasury has released its final rules for local government use of ARPA Recovery Funds. As a result, the accountability provisions will require some meaningful local compliance – NACo has assembled a helpful guidance document and is serving as a resource for county officials navigating this process.
