Mayor Genrich releases Community Survey for American Rescue Plan funds

 

(Green Bay, WI) – The City of Green Bay has released a community survey to get feedback from residents and community stakeholders on uses for the allocated funds from The American Rescue Plan. The American Rescue Plan (ARPA) was signed into law by President Biden on March 11th, 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.

 

“My priority is ensuring residents have a voice in how the City should focus these investments. This is an unprecedented opportunity for the City of Green Bay to invest in its residents by funding initiatives that will improve their everyday lives. It allows us to improve housing options, support small business, build more climate resilient infrastructure, and improve city services,” said Mayor Eric Genrich.

 

The federal ARPA dollars do have restrictions. Funds must be focused on improving Low-to-Moderate (LMI) income census tracts within the City of Green Bay and within certain categories for spending. This includes the following:

  • Addressing Negative Economic Impacts
  • Responding 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.

In addition to the survey, the Mayor will be hosting two Budget Town Halls in October seeking input from residents and community stakeholders.
