The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into law on March 11, 2021, and provides $350 billion for eligible state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to meet pandemic response needs and rebuild a stronger, more equitable economy as the country recovers. The City of High Point has been awarded $22,699,511 in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds as part of the American Rescue Plan Act. These federal resources are intended to help bring the pandemic under control and address its economic fallout by strengthening support for vital public services, helping to retain jobs, and providing economic stabilization for households and businesses.
The City is currently accepting applications from non-profit agencies for programs/services to be funded with these dollars. Up to $5,847,426 in funds are available for allocation.
Requests should be one-time in nature and showcase program sustainability after the funds have been spent, if applicable. Requests will be evaluated based on the themes from community input sessions held in November 2021, including employment, community programs, housing, education, and infrastructure, as well as the priorities of the Mayor and City Council.
