How should city spend $43M from feds?

The pandemic recovery funding may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to address some community needs.


The City of Evanston is looking for your ideas about how it should spend $43 million it is expected to receive from the federal American Rescue Plan Act.

There will be a town hall meeting on Saturday, June 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Robert Crown Community Center to seek ideas about how to spend the funds intended to assist with recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Registration is required. Food will be provided and child care will be available for children 2 to 12 years old. You can RSVP for the meeting here.

Two more meetings — one virtual, the other conducted in person in Spanish — are planned for later this month.
