Which projects do you think should be selected to receive funding?
The City of Ann Arbor would like to know which projects Ann Arborites would recommend to be funded using the $24 million of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that the city will receive.

On March 11, 2021 President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which provides financial support to local governments to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Ann Arbor is now in the process of determining how to allocate the onetime $24 million in ARPA funds the city is receiving. To help accomplish this, city staff have developed a list of potential projects that:
- Meet ARPA fund criteria;
- Impact an important public policy priority of City Council;
- Provide an opportunity for the city to pursue new or transformative initiatives;
- Help free up funds from other sources to accelerate investment in other critical city programs or infrastructure.
There are thirteen (13) potential projects identified by staff. The total project costs are greater than the available funding. Community input, through this survey, will help us understand which projects the public is most interested in seeing funded.
Community suggested projects are being considered by staff and will be provided to City Council for review.
City Council will take community input into consideration to make the final decision about what projects receive ARPA funds. A Council decision on this topic is expected March 2022.
