How Phoenix plans to spend American Rescue Act funds

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

Phoenix City Council will get a new update on Tuesday for how the city will spend its allocations from the federal American Rescue Act.

Phoenix is slated to get $396 million from the federal COVID pandemic relief.

The city received its first allocation of approximately $198 million on May 19. The second allocation of $198 million will be awarded next year.

The city is looking at putting $50 million of the first federal allocation toward municipal government operations. The city will put $143 million toward helping small businesses, nonprofits, arts groups, homeless shelters and others serving vulnerable populations.

That includes $28 million to help families with rental, mortgage and utility payment as well as child care help for workers at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Another $5 million is slated to be in a city reserve and contingency fund.

The council will be briefed on the plans at its June 8 meeting.
