Pueblo Residents Asked for Input on City’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding

ARPA

PUEBLO – Pueblo residents have a special opportunity to make recommendations to Mayor Gradisar and City Council during several Town Halls later this month. Mayor Gradisar has planned five Town Halls to encourage constituents to give input on the best use of the $36.7 million the City is expected to receive from the American Rescue Plan Act. The seven pillars of focus identified by the Mayor under federal guidelines are individuals and households, tourism and hospitality, youth, non-profits, small business, infrastructure, and community resilience. The Mayor will implement working groups for each pillar. Funding will be distributed over the next two years and must be used by December 31, 2024.

These Town Halls are an opportunity for residents to make suggestions for immediate stabilization and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. In announcing these town halls, Mayor Gradisar stated, “This is a unique opportunity for the City to make a real difference for our residents and the future of our City. I urge citizens to attend a Town Hall and share constructive ideas for the use of these once in a lifetime funds.” All Pueblo residents are invited to attend.
