The Town of Hilton Head Island will receive more than $5 million from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan, legislation that provides funding to local governments to help them respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Town officials, with recent approval from Town Council, plan to use the funds to assist Island residents, improve security and technology at Town Hall, and invest in infrastructure improvements (water, sewer and broadband). The Town already has received approximately $2.6 million and expects the remaining portion of its allocation in May 2022.

Based upon recommendations from Town staff, the Town Council approved the following allocations:
