County seeks public input on COVID recovery efforts

What are the challenges you and your family and friends have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic? What solutions or support should the County consider to help recovery?

These are the questions that the Plumas County Board of Supervisors is asking residents as part of outreach efforts to help the County decide how best to allocate federal ARPA funds intended to support residents during the pandemic.

President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) on March 11, 2021, to address public health and economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The federal government allocated a total of $3.6 million in ARPA funds to Plumas County.

To help determine how best to allocate these funds, the County invites all residents, 18 years and older, to participate in a community survey. Residents are encouraged to complete the web-based survey at by Dec. 15. You can also find the survey on the Plumas County website at and Facebook. Paper surveys will be located at the Plumas County Library branches in Quincy, Chester, and Portola starting the week of Nov. 22.
