What is an idea submission?

An idea communicates to the County a suggested focus for expenditure of Pandemic Recovery Funds as a priority or conceptual plan. Ideas can be anything from a short description of an initiative to a more detailed program that specifically addresses a need or disparity that has been caused or made worse by the Pandemic. Ideas are not requests for funding and do not require supporting documentation like a full project submission. For example: "I think the County should focus on affordable housing" or "We need a community center to serve the residents of my neighborhood.”
