City of Urbana COVID Recovery Funds (ARPA) - Public Survey

The City of Urbana was awarded $12.9 million in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds established in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). This is a one-time program that will not provide additional funds in the future. 

The best way to provide public input is to complete a short survey. The survey should only take a few minutes and helps provide an objective framework for collecting and analyzing community input. Please take a moment to complete the survey. The survey is also available in SpanishFrench, and Chinese. Paper surveys will also be available at the City building, Urbana Free Library and Cunningham Township.

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was passed on March 11, 2021. The purpose of these funds is to support state, local, and Tribal governments in their response to and recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency. To coordinate the public engagement that will inform ARPA fund priorities, draft a plan, solicit and review proposals, and ensure that processes and outcomes are properly documented and reported according to Federal guidelines, the City has entered into an agreement with the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission for staff support in administering the ARPA funds.
