American Recovery Act Funds
The Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Louis is seeking public input on the proposed spending of the American Recovery Act Funds
The City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen, through its legislative process, is seeking input on how the City of St. Louis should expend funds in accordance with the American Recovery Act.
Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed sponsored Board Bill 2, Ordinance 71393, which outlined the first round of priorities for funding in the community.
In addition, Board Bill 82 outlines $37M in priorities for ARPA funds.
The goal of this process is to provide funding for the immediate needs of the community caused by the pandemic and the related financial crisis due to COVID-19. The goal is to also address the longstanding pre-pandemic inequalities and lack of opportunity in our City; create much needed capital investments in our neighborhoods; and provide a path of growth for our City that benefits current residents and attracts new residents.
