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.
