Harnessing the ARPA State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund to Address Vacancy and Strengthen Communities
Date & Time
Thursday, September 8, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
The American Rescue Plan Act’s $350 billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (ARPA SLFRF) is being deployed by every unit of state, territorial, Tribal, county, and local government. Communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic can use this unprecedented infusion of federal dollars to address vacancy and abandonment to make neighborhoods stronger and healthier. In this breakout session attendees will hear directly from leaders of large and small cities that are using ARPA SLFRF funding to tackle vacancy, improve housing conditions, and reinvest in neighborhoods. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of how these communities have designed programs to leverage other funding sources and respond to community needs, as well as how they are tracking their impact and handling federal ARPA SLFRF compliance requirements.
