Population311,848Aid to counties is allocated using a proportional funding formula based on population while also accounting for an ARPA requirement related to ensuring "urban counties" receive sufficient funds (see the Treasury's methodology for more details: https://home.treasury.gov/system/files/136/Allocation-Methodology-for-Counties-508A.pdf).

Treasury published the allocations for each county and "county equivalents" (e.g., boroughs in AK, municipios in PR) here: https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/coronavirus/assistance-for-state-local-and-tribal-governments/state-and-local-fiscal-recovery-funds.

To estimate the ARP aid per resident at the county level, Civilytics used the most recent American Community Survey (ACS) five-year population estimates to determine counties' population.

To get a sense of scale, we can look at the median amount local governments receive from the federal government in a typical year. Looking across 150 of the largest U.S. cities, the federal government disburses about $250 per resident in aid to all local governments serving that resident (e.g., city, county), not including federal pass-through education aid. ARPA aid more than doubles that amount.
