City Seeking Volunteers to Advise on Use of American Rescue Plan Act Funds

American Rescue Plan Act

PUEBLO – The City of Pueblo encourages interested individuals to sign up for working groups which will provide direction to the City on the use of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. There will be seven groups; one for each pillar of focus: individuals and households, tourism and hospitality, youth, non-profits, small business, infrastructure, and community resilience. While decisions for ARPA funds are ultimately made by the Mayor and City Council, working group members serve in an advisory role to make recommendations to leadership. Members will develop strategy, prioritize projects, investigate ways to maximize funding streams, and make suggestions to the Mayor.

Working groups should focus on opportunities for immediate stabilization and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The groups are intended to be representative of, and responsive to, the Pueblo community and its unique needs. Working group volunteers should reside in Pueblo County. The volunteer form and other information may be found at: https://www.pueblo.us/2706/ARPA. Working group applicants will be appointed by the Mayor in the coming weeks.

The City of Pueblo is expected to receive approximately $36.7 million from the American Rescue Plan Act. Funding will be distributed over the next two years and must be used by December 31, 2024. Federal regulations are recently published regarding the use of funds.

A “Project Idea Submission Form” is also available now at: https://www.pueblo.us/2706/ARPA. Projects should respond to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19) or its negative economic impacts, including assistance to households, small businesses, nonprofits, or aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality
