Under the March 2021 American Rescue Plan, Elk County has received funding to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and its economic impacts through different categories of eligible uses; including medically related equipment/purchases, and loss of revenue. 

The Elk County Commissioners are pleased to provide this opportunity to financially assist our fire departments, emergency management and  law enforcement agencies. 

Information on the program guidelines may be found at the US Department of Treasury Fact Sheet at  We encourage you to review the guidelines for specific information on how those funds may be used.    If the project is unable to meet the US Department of Treasury guidelines, then Elk County will not be permitted to grant the request. 

There are two different applications which can be utilized; please review each one to see which your request is most applicable.
