Stonecrest Forward

STONECREST'S AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT "ARPA" PROGRAM 

Discover how Stonecrest is investing $9.7 million in federal stimulus funds to address the negative impacts of the pandemic in our community in a transparent, unbiased and efficient way.

Together, we are moving #STONECRESTFORWARD.

 
This summer, the City of Stonecrest invited residents, community organizations, business owners and area stakeholders to participate in an online survey to assist officials in determining the best use of funds received from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

The Act was signed into law on March 11, 2021. It is the sixth COVID-19 relief bill enacted and provides approximately $1.9 trillion in assistance. The City has been allocated $9.7 million in funding to address the negative impacts of the pandemic through a number of opportunities, including education, housing, food assistance, or loan and grant programs.

The survey is now closed. The City received more than 800 responses. 

Stonecrest appreciates your support and input in this important community outreach initiative. Currently, City leaders are reviewing the results and issues that are important to you. To view the ARPA survey results, click here.
