Advocacy Update / Minneapolis & American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding
Hear from former PPNA Board Member Rose Teng about the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that Minneapolis is set to receive from the federal government, $271 million in total.
Minneapolis has already committed $101 million of its ARPA dollars through the amended 2021 budget. An additional $120 million will be spent as part of the 2022 budget, which the City Council and Mayor are working on now through December 2021. This leaves $50 million that hasn't been included in either the 2021 or 2022 budgets.
City staff created a city-wide survey to hear from residents about how the remaining recovery funds should be spent. Take the survey here, now through September 24!
