American Rescue Plan Act Funding

Denver will receive $308 million in Local Relief Funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The U.S. Treasury is delivering the funds in two payments of $154 million in 2021 and 2022.

American Rescue Plan Act dollars are critical to the city's financial plan for recovery which includes a mix of federal, state, and local stimulus funds.
