The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) was passed into law on March 11, 2021. This law includes the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, which provides $19.53 billion to support tens of thousands of non-entitlement units of local government. These local governments typically serve a population under 50,000 and include the Town of Davidson. Davidson is projected to receive $4.16 million by July 2022.
The town aims to provide the highest and best use of this one-time federally provided funding and offer a plan that will provide transformational and high value impact for the community. The town has established a series of Guiding Principles and seeks to offer support in one or more of the following areas: Affordable Living and Housing, Critical Infrastructure, Historic Storytelling/Restorative Justice, Mental Health Response, and Sustainability.
