We have received $130 million in funding that must be spent by December 31, 2024. Funding should support causes, issues and groups who have been most impacted by the pandemic.
Please share your feedback about what you think the top priorities should be for federal funding the city of Las Vegas has received from the American Rescue Plan by 5 p.m. August 13.
The key areas being considered are:
Nonprofit support: This could include projects like retraining of displaced workers, eviction assistance, housing for the homeless, expanded education opportunities, broadband internet access and mental health assistance.
Affordable housing: This could include acquiring new land or existing apartments and housing to offer more affordable housing.
Business assistance: This could include a city-funded campaign to promote reopened businesses, grants for businesses not included in other government programs during the pandemic, expansion of the Downtown Loop free shuttle or a public art program that would hire artists to provide more public art murals and/or performances.
Public assistance: This could include repurposing land to support homeless services, affordable housing and work development training, a mental health facility, restoring city services positions that were eliminated during the pandemic, vaccination sites, improving air quality at city facilities, provide more support for the homeless by expanding services in the Corridor of Hope downtown or providing grants for homeowners that have been unemployed and have deferred maintenance of their homes.
Take the survey.
