Town Allocates Federal Funds to Support Community Services


On October 5, 2021, the Danville Town Council met to consider how to allocate Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds that were received as a part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. The Town has received $5.3 million and is eligible to receive up to $10.6 million in Recovery Funds over the next two years.  Funds are intended to help partially offset Town revenue losses due to the economic impacts resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic.  The Town Council action will allocate $1.65 million of these funds to support community programs and partnerships that will address high priority needs and help spur economic recovery.

Program funds allocated include:

Mental Health - $250,000 to identify and support local and/or regional service providers with initiatives to address pandemic-induced social isolation, provide mental health services/assistance or improve response to behavioral health crises.

Homeless Services – $100,000 to identify and support local, regional and/or county programs and services that shelter, feed and care for our homeless population.  

Senior Services - $500,000 to implement measures and recommendations identified to support seniors through the “Age-Friendly Roadmap” currently being developed by the Town Senior Advisory Commission.


Partnership funds awarded include:        

Danville Area Chamber of Commerce - $150,000 to support Danville businesses to facilitate economic recovery and growth and broaden the local economic base.

Discovery Counseling Center, Danville - $100,000 to support community mental health and wellness services.

Meals on Wheels Diablo Region - $100,000 to support services that promote independence and health for seniors.

Danville Library Foundation - $100,000 to support broadened and enhanced services offered through the Danville Library.

Friends of the Danville Library - $100,000 to provide materials, programs and services for the Danville Library.

Museum of the San Ramon Valley - $100,000 to support efforts to preserve the heritage and history of the San Ramon Valley. 

San Ramon Valley Education Foundation - $100,000 to support public education with programs that assist children.

Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area, Danville- $100,000 to provide resources and support for people with Down Syndrome and their families.       

Eugene O’Neill Foundation - $50,000 to support literature, theater and the arts.

“This is a good step in providing the care and assistance our community needs as we continue on the road to recovery from the pandemic,” said Danville Mayor Renee Morgan. “We are very pleased that we will be able to put these federal recovery funds into action across a broad spectrum of identified needs.” 

With the Council’s action, the appropriated ARPA funds are expected to be distributed by the end of October.
