Share Your Big Ideas: ARPA Survey Closes
The city of Aurora
is keeping its survey and idea boards open until Oct. 8 at EngageAurora.org/ARPAas part of an
effort to gather feedback from residents, businesses and service providers
on how millions in federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars coming to the
city could have the greatest positive impact on the community.
Rescue Plan Act was signed into law in March 2021 to provide significant
resources to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and its
economic impacts. The city of Aurora will receive $65.4 million in one-time
direct federal aid, with additional funding provided for programs related
to rental and housing assistance.
In August, the
city launched the survey and idea boards at EngageAurora.org/ARPA to gather community feedback on how the city should
spend the funds allocated to Aurora. The deadline to participate is Oct. 8.
Based on the
parameters set by the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act, the city
has identified three main categories for use of these federal funds:
community assistance, infrastructure funding and service preservation. The
survey asks the community to rank their choices of potential priorities in
these three categories, and the idea boards allow participants to write in
their own ideas in the same categories.
