American Rescue Plan

Minneapolis received federal stimulus funds. See a summary of how we are spending it.


Minneapolis gets a total of $271 million through the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.

  • This is a section of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
  • The money comes in two installments.
    • The first installment came in May 2021.
    • The second installment comes in May 2022.
  • We can use it to cover costs incurred between March 3, 2021 and December 24, 2024.

Phase 1

The first round of revenue replacement and program spending was approved in July 2021. The total amount is $102 million. 


Interim appropriations 

An additional $11.5 million was appropriated this fall to several time-sensitive projects. The City Council also passed a budget amendment approving $3.75 million dollars for violence prevention. The 2022 City budget includes $47 million to make up for lost revenue, and the Mayor has recommended $72 million to make up for lost revenue in 2023-2024. 

Phase 2

The City is in the process of deciding how to use the unspent $35 million. The second round of spending was proposed by Mayor Frey on April 26, 2022. A total of $7.8 million is being repurposed from Phase 1 projects, resulting in a total recommendation of approximately $43 million. 

The final $43 million

We plan to use this money to focus on:

  • Housing/homelessness
  • Economic rebuilding
  • Public safety
  • Climate
  • Public health

City staff and elected officials will use survey data and public input during the decision-making process.
