  11. Supporting Recovery

    Yakima County is committed to helping our community recover from the pandemic. It is important to ensure that health and welfare insecurities that have been created or intensified by the pandemic are addressed. Investments in fire and emergency response and our local healthcare system will increase the quality of care and emergency response.  

    Examples of projects in this category include: programs providing mental health services, child care, access to youth sports/activities, support for families experiencing homelessness, and fire/life/safety equipment.

  12. Reconnecting Community

    COVID-19 has forced us into social distancing, isolation and quarantine. These conditions may foster widespread anxiety and loneliness in our community. Through the expansion and refurbishment trails and parks, vibrant public spaces and community events, the residents of Yakima County will enjoy the benefits of good health.  It’s important to remedy negative emotional climates with strategies to reconnect our community.

    Examples of projects in this category include: programs support local events, tourism, and economic development.

  13. Building Resiliency

    With a focus on shovel ready projects, Yakima County will expand existing road and utility infrastructure which will increase the ability of households to connect to municipal drinking water, superior wells, sewer, or superior drain fields, and expand broadband across the County.  These improvements will increase public health and safety while simultaneously increasing affordable housing development opportunities.

    Examples of projects in this category include: programs investing in physical plant improvements, and purchase of equipment.
