ARPA Dashboard

On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package aimed to help the country’s economy. The goal was to return to pre-COVID strength. Cabarrus County got awarded $42,043,458 of State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF). The money will provide support for households, small businesses and communities. Especially those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This ARPA OpenGov Dashboard provides a breakdown of each funding category. For the sake of transparency, this dashboard will be updated continuously. Updates will include key performance indicator data and additional program information.

Strategic Plan Dashboard

The strategic plan provides guidance for the Board of Commissioners and County staff. The goal is to work towards meeting the same goals and objectives.

Five Priorities

  • Healthy and Safe Community
  • Transparent and Accountable Government
  • Culture and Recreation
  • Thriving Economy
  • Sustainable Development

Each strategic priority is accompanied by more defined goals and objectives. County staff measure performance related to these goals and objectives each year.
