It is easier than ever to find out how the city of Phoenix is spending the millions of dollars in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding.

The city recently launched its ARPA website after approving the $198 million ARPA Strategic Plan. Since that time, city departments have been working hard to prepare programs and offer critically needed services to the community. The City Council approved the ARPA Utility and Rental Assistance Program last month, allocating $4 million to boost the existing Emergency Rental Assistance Program. It also reserved $5 million to initiate the Deferred Payment Arrangement Recovery Program and $1 million for the Landlord Incentive Program.

The City Council was expected to approve many ARPA programs that had been requested to come back for more discussion as of late last month.

Phoenix’s ARPA website is a tool to provide transparency to residents on how the city is spending these federal dollars. It includes program summary information, as well as expenditures and allocations. The site will be updated to include performance measures, along with corresponding website links.
