Detroit Michigan and the American Rescue Plan
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also called the COVID-19 Stimulus Package or American Rescue Plan, is a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill passed by the 117th United States Congress.
The city of Detroit is slated to receive $826 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
The first $413 million arrives next week, while the second $413 million next year. The funds need to be spent by 2024.
“The question is what kind of city would you like to see us build?” Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan
Duggan also said $400 million of the money needs to be put toward budget shortfalls through the next three years and make up for money moved around during the pandemic. For example, Detroit pulled $50 million from blight and clean up when it became clear tax revenues were cratering during the pandemic.
This leaves $426 million to spend.
The mayor’s team has identified six areas to funnel the money:
$100 million to fight intergenerational poverty
$100 million to restore neighborhoods
$100 million for parks and recreation
$50 million for public safety
$50 million for the digital divide
