ARPA Recovery Funding
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 Survey
Mayor Genrich and the Common Council of the City of Green Bay requested your feedback on the use of $23.7 million for our community.
The American Rescue Plan (ARPA) was signed into law on March 11, 2021, and will deliver $350 billion to eligible state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to aid in the response to and recovery from the COVID-19 emergency. In addition to the eligible funding objectives outlined below, the City will use a portion of the ARPA funds based on a calculation of the revenue lost due to COVID-19 to strengthen and support the provision of City services.
The federal government will provide half of the ARPA funds in 2021, and the balance in 2022. The City will have until December 31, 2024 to obligate these funds and must spend them all by 2026.
The federal legislation, which was adopted by Congress, has offered this relief to state and local governments, allowing us the City to offer much-needed relief in the following ways:
Addressing Negative Economic Impacts
- Respond to small business and/or hardest hit industries in low-to-moderate census tracts.
Providing Infrastructural Investments in Eligible Categories
- Make necessary investments in local capital improvements such as stormwater and drinking water.
ARPA Activity as of FY2022 4th Quarter
