Please take a few moments to provide your input on the City of Fond du Lac's use of the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding.
The Federal Government, through the American Rescue Plan Act, has allocated $350 billion in direct funding to eligible state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Fond du Lac will be deciding how this funding should be used and currently seeks feedback to find out the priorities of Fond du Lac residents, business owners, and organizations. Funding must be used to help respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with guidelines from the U.S. Treasury Department. Approved spending categories include:
PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 – Funding COVID-19 mitigation efforts, medical expenses, and behavioral healthcare.
NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACTS – Providing aide to households, individuals and businesses facing economic hardships caused by the pandemic.
- INVESTEMENTS IN INFRASTRUCTURE – Making necessary investments improve access to clean drinking water and support vital wastewater and storm water infrastructure and expand access to broadband internet.
- SERVICES TO DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTED GROUPS – providing aide and services to groups that were disadvantaged before the public health emergency. By definition, residents of Qualified Census Tracts are disproportionately impacted groups. Click the link to see a map outline of the City's Qualified Census Tract --> QUALIFIED CENSUS TRACT LINK.
