American Rescue Plan Act

General Overview

Executive Summary
At the time of this writing, the City of Fresno has not yet allocated or expended the State and Local Fiscal Recovery funds associated with this report. The Interim Final Rule released by the Treasury Department in May 2021 has not been finalized.  Although the City is actively considering proposals, the City has not yet officially allocated any proposed use of funds.  So, this report simply reflects a high-level outline of the City’s intended approach to utilize the funding associated with this annual report.

The City has developed an American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) website which, over time, will include information on ARPA and the City’s priorities and guiding principles. This initial Recovery Plan Performance Report will be posted on the website by August 31, 2021. The main City of Fresno webpage is located at https://www.fresno.gov/arpa

Promoting Equitable Outcomes
The City of Fresno intends to require all proposals to detail and define how the proposals will promote equity in underserved, marginalized, adversely affected groups served by the proposal.

Community Engagement
The City of Fresno has developed an ARPA website and intends to solicit written and oral input from constituents, CBOs, and communities, through the website and social media marketing. The website is transcribable in over 100 languages.

Labor Practices
The City of Fresno will utilize customary procurement practices for all projects initiated directly by the City.

Use of Evidence
