Miller County, Arkansas (KTAL / KMSS) – Miller County, Arkansas will receive millions of dollars in the COVID-19 Relief Fund from the federal government.
Based on population size, Miller County expects to allocate $ 8.4 million from the US Treasury to improve its infrastructure. However, only $ 4 million is immediately available.
“Citizens of Miller County should be excited about this money to move the county forward,” said Judge Kathy Harrison.
The US Relief Plan contains an extensive list of projects that can be covered. According to Harrison, the area will focus on roads, buildings, water, construction tools and broadband to improve signaling in rural areas.
“Our focus is now on primary and secondary roads,” Harrison said.
If the project is approved, the county does not have to repay the money. However, if the proposal is rejected, the government will receive a refund.
“This is a big advantage for Miller County. We’ve been retreating over the years anyway. Within the general range of our budget county. When I took office, we were 1.5 million behind. We were in the place six years ago, “Harrison said.
The remaining $ 4 million will be provided to the county by the end of next year if future project proposals are approved. Judge Harrison said some of the money could go into the account in as little as three days.
Bowie County also received about $ 18 million in funding. However, authorities have not yet released information on the allocation.
