Austin also told the County Board that, after meeting with the Adams County United Way, the County's plan, to funnel some $1 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds to area non-profit organizations impacted by the pandemic, would be extended several months into next year. Austin explained why.

He told the County Board that 26 non-profits had applied for ARPA funding, and that out of that group, only 10 had submitted the full information needed. Austin says that the application should soon be re-posted at the United Way's website. The County Board also approved a resolution of support for the Quincy Riverfront Development Corporation, and approved a plan to re-apportion its' districts, based on last year's Census. Unlike the City of Quincy, Adams County is required to do a re-apportionment every 10 years. As a result of the re-apportionment, several precincts were moved to other districts, all within Quincy.
