Welcome to the Winona County American Rescue Plan State and Local Government Fiscal Recovery Grant Application for Broadband Projects

American Rescue Plan State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund

Winona County received money under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF) to mitigate the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  US Treasury guidelines allow the County to allocate funds to not-for-profits, businesses, government organizations, and more.

The County has put together a framework under which allocations are being made.  The plan includes $2.6 million for expanding broadband to underserved and unserved areas of the County, $1.5 million for direct to business grants, $3.1 million for County programs and $2.6 million for Special Projects.  This application is for broadband projects.  Projects must expand access to broadband, extend services to underserved or unserved county residents and businesses or further connectivity in other ways. The US Treasury provides a list of eligible project categories.  If you are submitting a project other than for broadband, please use the Winona County Special Projects application form.

This application is only for departments of Winona County.  If you are an external organization and have a program or project you would like to submit to Winona County for consideration, please use the Winona County Special Projects and Programs Grant Application.

For Winona County departments you must submit an application in order to propose the use of American Rescue Plan State on Local Fiscal Recovery Funds.  Applications will be vetted by Winona County Administration and may require Winona County Board approval.
