Larimer County on April 29 submitted its Quarterly Compliance Report, explaining its use of State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) under the American Rescue Plan Act. The Compliance Report shows that Larimer County has expended just over $9.5 million of its $69.3 million SLFRF allocation. The primary uses of the funds so far include:

  • $6.6 million reimbursement for payroll costs for County workers whose jobs continue to be impacted by COVID-19 mitigation and response. The impacts are in the Community Justice Alternatives Department. the Office of the Coroner, and the Office of the Sheriff
  • $1.5 million for incremental pay and retention pay for employees in the Community Justice Alternatives Department and the Office of the Sheriff to recognize their critical contribution to public safety while working in a congregate corrections environment.
  • $1 million in grants made to small businesses, non-profit organizations, and other units of local government to mitigate the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to provide critical health, behavioral health, substance abuse, and childcare services to the public; with a remaining $2 million still to be spent for this grant program
  • $182,000 in increased costs to monitor and test inmates in the Larimer County Jail who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms
  • Initial costs to study the feasibility of constructing a water system in Red Feather Lakes

The Compliance Report also includes allocations for future projects, including:

  • $12 mllion to expand high-quality broadband service in unincorporated Larimer County
  • $10 million, with a planned match from State COVID-19 funds, to construct a second phase of the Behavioral Health Facility, in which services will primarily be provided to youth
  • $2.7 million to make improvements to the Community Justice Alternatives facility that will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and enhance service provision.
  • $1.4 million to make water-related improvements in natural areas and open spaces
  • $450,000 to hire an additional prosecution position in the Office of the District Attorney 
  • Up to $31 million for additional community projects that will make transformative change to mitigate the economic and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
