What is ARPA Funding and how does it benefit our community?

American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding comprises federal funds designed to support local governments responding to the economic and public health impacts of 2019. ARPA funds are a one-time funding source and are separate from the standard ongoing city budget process.

City Council, supported by staff, had the task of deciding how to best leverage the use of these ARPA funds to assist with Covid-19 recovery in the community.
