Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is set to roll out a gush of new federally backed funding for anti-violence and other programming.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is set to roll out about $20.8 million in new federally backed funding for anti-violence intervention programs among a host of new American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) initiatives as the county faces mounting threats to public safety and economic stability.
Commissioners are scheduled to fast-track the approval of five separate new spending initiatives during Thursday’s 10 a.m. meeting of the Cook County Board of Commissioners. The board is also scheduled during the meeting to approve dozens of other measures, including the adoption of the county’s new flag design, the appointment of a new public health director and a half-dozen new commercial property tax breaks.
