Johnson County - Negative Economic Impacts Survey: Households, Families & Workers

Negative Economic Impacts Questionnaire: Households, Families & Workers

Johnson County wants your feedback on how to invest $29.3 million in ARPA Local Fiscal Recovery Funding. This questionnaire supplements an input session focused on understanding the negative economic impacts COVID-19 had on the residents of Johnson County. 

Johnson County invites residents and business owners to attend a public input session on Monday, September 13 at the Coralville Public Library, Meeting Room A, from 5:30-7 p.m. We understand that work schedules, childcare, and COVID-19 concerns prevent residents from participating in-person. This questionnaire allows residents to participate remotely.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend Johnson County events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation, including language translation, in order to participate in this event, please contact Keshia Fields, Inclusion and Equity Specialist, at or 319-688-5818.
