American Rescue Plan

We asked for your ideas on how to spend the final $50 million. We are now compiling the results.


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.
