Maricopa County is putting hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funds to immediate use helping people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic while also pulling back on discretionary spending unrelated to the crisis.

It’s a one-two effort to best serve taxpayers during a time of national emergency, according to a release. On Monday, the Board of Supervisors approved a tentative $3.071 billion budget for fiscal year 2021. The bulk of spending is focused on core statutory responsibilities like public safety, with an increased amount dedicated to community health.
