ARPA Funds Survey (America Rescue Plan Act)

As you are probably aware, the City of Flint has been awarded over $90 Million dollars in ARPA funds. Now the City would like to know YOUR opinion on how you’d like to see the money spent.

Please share your needs and priorities as a local resident, property or business owner.

The City of Flint will receive $94.7 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. One first tranche ($47.3 million) was received in July 2021 and the second half is expected to be received in July 2022. Funds must be obligated by December 2024 and spent by December 2026. Funds can only be used in accordance with the Act, which generally allows for the support of public utilities, elements of economic development, elements of social services, pandemic-related emergency services, and recovering lost municipal income.

The survey will close March 31, 2022.
