OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Douglas County Board voted Tuesday on how it will give out the $55.5 million it has received through the federal American Rescue Plan.
The board decided to focus on:
- Addressing the county's government needs first and then considering requests from public and private sectors.
- Making mental health a priority when spending the money.
- Compiling a master list and vet requests to determine if they qualify for the funds.
So far, the county has not distributed any of the money.
