BLOUNTVILLE — Sullivan County is expected to receive $30 million in federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. As of Tuesday, requests for use of that money totaled more than $38 million.
The list is not complete. The county can’t submit any proposals for using its ARPA funds to the state for approval until early January. The Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury’s Office has offered county governments use of a consultant to make sure the money is spent in a way that meets federal guidelines.
