The American Rescue Plan Act

2022 Proposed Budget

The City of Toledo's Recovery Plan

The American Rescue Plan Act provides the City of Toledo with unprecedented resources to directly confront problems that were caused or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With this grant from the federal government through ARPA, the city will respond to many unmet needs of Toledo and Toledoans, including low and moderate-income Toledoans and Toledoans of color who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

Where the Money Can Go

Mayor Kapszukiewicz and Toledo City Council have established a Toledo Recovery Task Force to ensure that the needs of Toledo and its businesses and residents are met with ARPA funding.

The City has focused on five areas of investment in the Toledo Recovery Plan:

1. Youth, Recreation, and Parks

2. Safe and Livable Neighborhoods

3. Job Creation and Economic Development

4. Green and Healthy Housing

5. Avoiding Cuts to City Services

SMART Analysis

When evaluating these programs and projects, and all others that are proposed for the Toledo Recovery Plan, Toledo will be using “SMART Analysis” to ensure oversight and promote a strong and equitable recovery in Toledo. Toledo’s commitment to “SMART Analysis” was approved by Toledo City Council on June 9, 2021 with adoption of Resolution 299-21.
