Press Release: County Tops State in New Energy Funding


American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides both formula and competitive grant funding sources. The amount of formula funding County governments will receive is based on statutory formulas which will be applied to the increased funding available through ARRA. Competitive grant funds will be awarded based on an application process.

The County of Sonoma is primarily focusing its efforts on identifying opportunities for which it is eligible to apply for competitive grant funds.
