Phoenix City Council Approves Millions in Federal Funds to Support Communityhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/city-manager/1943City Manager6/9/2021 3:15:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1943/Newsroom_Default_01.jpgPhoenix City Council Approves Millions in Federal Funds to Support Community<div class="ExternalClassBEC4E5C901FD4CB9A123CE7203937747"><html>The Phoenix City Council <a target="_blank" href="/cityclerksite/City%20Council%20Meeting%20Files/6-8-21%20Policy%20Agenda%20-%20Final.pdf">voted Tuesday to spend $198 million in federal funds​</a> to support communities hit hard by COVID-19 including small business owners, workers affected by the economic impact of the pandemic, low-income families, youth programs and the arts.<br><br>The money comes from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), signed by the President in March.  The money is designed to address the negative economic impacts of COVID-19.<br><br>The city is funding programs that address two priorities: financial investment in the community and city operations such as infrastructure, technology, and revenue replacement. <br><br><strong>COMMUNITY INVESTMENT</strong><br>The Council set aside the bulk of the ARPA funds, $143 million, to support vulnerable populations, businesses, and those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. <br><br>Some of those funds will be spent as follows:<br><ul><li>$28m: Financial assistance for low-to moderate-income families, including rent, utilities, and internet assistance for those in need.</li><li>$35m: Business and employee assistance programs including a new workforce training facility, tuition assistance, and services to promote job training and placement.</li><li>$31.5m: Care for vulnerable populations including mental and behavioral health support services for those experiencing homelessness, funds for veterans impacted adversely by COVID-19, and support for safe respite centers providing relief from the summer heat.</li><li>$5m: Arts and culture support including grants, worker support, and an arts internship program for student artists.</li><li>$28m: From early childhood education to laptops and Wi-Fi hot spots for students preparing for college, these funds would support youth programs including sports, recreation, and after-school programs.</li><li>$9.7m: Money would be used to feed those in need, preserve local farmland and support areas struggling with high food insecurity and hunger rates.</li><li>$5m: Fund for better health outcomes are focused on providing testing and vaccinations for COVID-19.</li></ul><strong>CITY OPERATIONS</strong><br>The Council voted to use $50 million for infrastructure, technology, capital needs and revenue replacement, including the following key areas: <br><ul><li>$23m: This money will be used to address key projects that were put on hold or made worse because of the pandemic.  For example, during the pandemic, residents needing to apply for assistance through the Human Services Department were unable to do so easily online because they city's outdated Case Management System doesn't allow for online applications.</li><li>22.4m: Unlike other Federal funds, ARPA funds can be used for revenue replacement, such as that experienced by the Phoenix Convention Center which was severely impacted due to the downturn in travel, tourism, and hospitality.  The funds would support the Convention Center's financial recovery efforts.  </li></ul>The city of Phoenix will receive a total of $396 million in ARPA funds over the next two years.  The recent Council vote only addresses the first payment of $198 million.  Spending for the distribution expected in the Spring of 2022 will be determined at a future date.<br><br>The city will also set aside $5 million in the event the federal government changes guidance to allow funds to be used in a new area of concern or if an approved program uses all its funds prior to the next payment from the federal government.<br><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNewscity-managerPhoenix NewsroomCity Manager@CityofPhoenixAZ #ARPA #COVID #COVID19ARPA, American Rescue Plan Act, COVID-19Dan Wilson602-760-6660602-495-5901daniel.b.wilson@phoenix.gov https://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/44/Dan_Wilson.jpgPHXCityManager
