DHS Receives ARRA Stimulus Funds

In early 2009, DHS was awarded millions of stimulus dollars from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 either as a primary grantee or a sub-grantee. These grants helped to mitigate the effects of the economic downturn on Allegheny County. Funds were for programs of varying durations with effective dates between February 2009 and July 2011.
