On the latest episode of the Texas Association of Counties' podcast, Texas County Voice, TAC County Relations Officer and former Lavaca County Judge Tramer Woytek looks at the key issues and questions associated with the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). It was a year ago on March 11 that President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion measure into law. ARPA set aside about $5.7 billion in direct aid to every county in Texas.
Woytek has been leading a series of ARPA workshops around the state. The workshops continue through July 11. See if there's one near you by visiting TAC's events calendar.
TAC launched Texas County Voice in January to highlight the people and issues important to Texas counties. In addition to www.county.org, episodes are also available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.
