In response to the global Covid-19 pandemic and the associated impacts on communities across the United States, The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 has allocated Kankakee County $21.3 million in federal response funds. Previously, Kankakee County released an RFQ and selected the Fiscal Agent for this grant, Rincon Family Services. They will be responsible for select trainings and the monitoring of the recipients of this grant for compliance.
