American Rescue Plan Act
FUNDS FOR THE FUTURE OF ST. PETE
The City of St. Petersburg is expected to receive approximately $45 million from President Biden's American Rescue Plan Act. Mayor Rick Kriseman and his administration, with the support of City Council, developed a series of workshops for community feedback to help prioritize which areas of impact receive funds. Feedback collected during these workshops will be aggregated and directly influence the ranking of priorities for receiving funds.
The City has outlined the following areas of impact eligible for the funds, based on strict federal guidelines: infrastructure, housing affordability and support, health and social equity, economic recovery/resilience, and public health/safety.
Each workshop included opening statements and presentations outlining the state of affairs for each area of impact by subject matter experts, followed by breakout sessions where participants ranked the areas for funding prioritization.
