ARPA Funding Community Engagement Results

Since November 2021, city staff solicited input from residents on priorities for the $154 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. Residents provided comments in-person, online, and at drop boxes located at recreation centers and libraries. The results of this community engagement are now available to the public through the ARPA Public Engagement Results resource guide. 

This detailed report of all public comments received was provided to City Council on Saturday, March 5.

How can you access the guide?

  • It will be emailed directly to residents who provided an email address at sign-in at one of the ARPA public meetings.
  • Online
  • At libraries beginning the week of March 14.

What’s next?

Your feedback was used to create a community-based City Manager’s recommendation for City Council consideration, which they are now reviewing and amending. Prior to adoption, a public hearing will be held for additional comment. More information on the public hearing will be provided as it becomes available. Norfolk’s ARPA webpage.
