Zoar Gardens is a big draw for tourists and visitors every summer. Zoar is scheduled to receive $30,000 of the estimated $17.8 million coming to Tuscarawas County from the American Rescue Plan Act.

NEW PHILADELPHIA Commissioners are awaiting federal guidelines before deciding how to spend the estimated $17.8 million Tuscarawas County is projected to receive through the newly enacted American Rescue Plan Act. 

The legislation also includes $19.6 billion for towns with less than 50,000 residents. The amount of money that communities in the Tuscarawas Valley will receive varies widely — from a high of $3.1 million for New Philadelphia to $10,000 for the village of Deersville in Harrison County.
