Recovery Office Initiatives

Montgomery County, Pennsylvania established the Recovery Office (RO) to guide the County’s recovery work by ensuring the $161 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds the County received are managed in a responsible, effective, and equitable matter.

The County is committed to utilizing current and future funding from Federal or State sources in a bold, innovative, equitable manner. By listening to our residents, and community partners, researching best practices, and leveraging other resources, we will create impactful initiatives, investments, and infrastructure improvements that will have a long-term, measurable, and sustainable impact. 

The Montgomery County Recovery Office creates and follows an inclusive, objective, collaborative, and transparent process to identify and select initiatives to fund and manage expenditures responsibly.
