Travis County allocated nearly $51 million of remaining Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to assist non-profit organizations and other programs on Monday, in an effort to address ongoing community needs, including food access, childcare and rental assistance.

The money is part of the $247 million Travis County received in American Rescue Plan Act Funds in 2021. The county split its funding into four components that funded emergency assistance programs during the Coronavirus pandemic, including relief funding and public health needs, and supportive housing projects to help solve the county’s homelessness issue.

Money will go to strengthening the local childcare system by partnering with organizations like the United Way and Workforce Solutions Capital Area, that will help fund stipends for childcare providers.
