Council gets more ARPA funding recommendations

New recommendations would increase from 11% to 39% the portion of the total American Rescue Plan Act funding allocated to specific projects.


Evanston City Council members are scheduled to receive more recommendations from city staff Monday night on how to spend the more than $43 million the city is receiving in federal American Rescue Plan Act funding.

In August the Council voted to allocate $4.65 million of the funds to three projects. The new recommendations, if accepted by the Council, would raise the total funds allocated to $16.8 million.

The chart above shows the proposed and approved projects along with the amount of funds in each of six broad categories proposed by staff that remain TBD — to be determined.

Additional detail about each project can be found by clicking on a project name in the chart.

The special City Council meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Civic Center.
