American Rescue Plan (ARPA)
The American Rescue Plan (ARPA) is a federal initiative created to alleviate many of the challenges communities are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Winooski will receive about $2 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds over the next couple of years. These funds will be used to respond to the ongoing negative impacts of the pandemic. Over the coming months, opportunities for community engagement will be available to help prioritize the use of ARPA funding.
