Snohomish County Pandemic Recovery Outreach & Priorities 

Recovery Roadshow


In February 2022, ORR launched a countywide community engagement effort to guide investment strategies for the County’s remaining ARPA funding. The goal was to get a clear set of pandemic recovery priorities from the community to directly inform all programs and spending decisions.


The engagement effort involved a three-pronged approach to ensure widespread coverage across the county:

  • Prong One: Facilitated recovery discussions with community leaders who either represent or serve populations and issues most impacted by the pandemic.
  • Prong Two: One-on-one meetings with leadership from 17 Snohomish County cities and towns.
  • Prong Three: Five in-person Recovery Roadshows where residents could vote on and then discuss top pandemic recovery priorities.

As a result of the hundreds of conversations and engagements undertaken over the last four months, ORR has identified the following overall community pandemic recovery priorities:
