This survey is to help identify needs in Payne County for water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure, particularly those arising from the pandemic and possible solutions to address those needs for ARPA Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery funds apportioned to Payne County.

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 provides relief funds to state, local, and Tribal governments to enable them to continue to support the public health response and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable economic recovery. Payne County recognizes that certain needs in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure were highlighted in responding to the public health emergency. Payne County is requesting feedback from the community on the needs facing these areas of service due to the pandemic.

These funds are limited, one-time use monies and must comply with guidance from the U.S. Treasury. Not all projects identified by this feedback will be eligible and not all requests will be funded. Surveys responses will be accepted through January 31, 2022.
