Resolution to Appropriate American Rescue Plan Funding ($24,182,630.00) (8 Votes Required)
In 2021 the City of Ann Arbor was informed that it would be awarded $24,182,630.00 in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds. Following the notice, City Council directed the City Administrator to prepare a plan for allocating the funds. On October 1, 2021 the City Administrator communicated to Council potential eligible projects and recommended a public engagement campaign to help prioritize the funds.

On October 18, 2021, City Council adopted resolution #R-21-396 which directed the public engagement campaign and directed the City Administrator to provide a final allocation plan by March 1, 2022. Staff engaged in a robust public engagement campaign in January and February of 2022 which resulted in more than 250 attendees at virtual town halls and more than 2,500 participants in an online survey.

On February 25, 2022, the City Administrator provided a report on the outcome of the public engagement campaign and the final recommendation for Council's consideration. Subsequently, City Council approved resolution #R-22-096, which directed final funding allocations/projects.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: American Rescue Plan Funds have not been previously appropriated and are not included in the City Administrator's FY 2023 Annual Budget recommendation; therefore, in order to establish project budgets and begin spending in accordance with resolution #R-22-096, funding must be appropriated to amend the City's budget.
