American Rescue Plan Task Force

The purpose of the American Rescue Plan Task Force is to advise Council on best use of funds from the American Rescue Plan, an act of Congress that gave state and local governments funding to mitigate the significant negative financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Task Force, which is compromised of leaders from local government, civic groups and business associations, meets to hear proposals for potential uses of Jefferson Parish's funds.
