More information on ARPA/ALFRF funds can be found here or on the County website under ARPA Fund Request.  

***The County has paused the ARPA fund request program while they go through their budget process. Blaine County's budget process starts in May and goes through June. This process takes staff time and resources, which will delay the County's ability to process ARPA fund requests in a timely manner. As a result, the Board of County Commissioners have decided to delay receiving ARPA fund requests until the County's budget process is finished. ARPA fund request forms will be available starting in July, keep an eye on the County News Flash for the most up to date information.
