ARPA Poster_Bring Monroe Back: Monroe County, NY Recovery Plan

American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) was signed into law on March 11, 2021. ARPA allocated $1.9 trillion in emergency relief and recovery, of which $350 billion is designated to support state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments. Thanks to the hard work of Congressman Joseph D. Morelle, and Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Monroe County, New York is the recipient of $144,080,127 in State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds through the American Rescue Plan Act.


Public Feedback
In order to best identify how to spend these funds, County Executive Adam Bello is launching a robust effort to collect public feedback which includes: in-person and virtual community forums, a Community-Wide ARPA Survey and testimony from community organizations.

There will be three in-person community forums and one virtual forum where citizens will be able to learn about ARPA funds and share their thoughts about how to Bring Monroe Back. If you’d like to receive an invite to the virtual forum please email BringMonroeBack@monroecounty.gov
