ARPA Action Plan
On March 11, President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into law, awarding millions of dollars directly to cities.
As a result, the City of Burlington has over $15 million to invest in projects that the community selects. According to the federal guidelines, these funds must be used for projects that respond to the health crisis; address racial and economic inequities; support broadband access and improve water systems, and/or support tourism.
The City has identified several projects that are eligible to be funded using ARPA money and have the opportunity to positively impact Burlington by meeting a number of high-priority goals. We are looking for your feedback on these projects and ideas of your own.
Below you will find a survey to share your views on these projects. By completing this survey, you are impacting how we invest in Burlington’s future. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your voice!
Once the survey results are reviewed, the City will host multiple town hall meetings to discuss the most requested projects in further detail and collect community feedback on other uses of the funding. Return to this page for more information on the dates and times of these town halls.
