Office of Recovery and Resilience
Working toward a swift, community-wide recovery from COVID-19
We must transition from COVID-19 response to medium- and long-term economic and community recovery. Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers established the Office of Recovery & Resilience (ORR) to guide the County’s recovery work by ensuring the $160 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds the County received is administered quickly and equitably.
At the Executive's direction, ORR conducted an extensive community engagement effort to hear directly from communities on their needs and priorities for our collective pandemic recovery. This community feedback will guide all remaining ARPA investments.
