The American Rescue Plan Act provides the City of Toledo with unprecedented resources to directly confront problems that were caused or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With this grant from the federal government through ARPA, the city will respond to many unmet needs of Toledo and Toledoans, including low and moderate-income Toledoans and Toledoans of color who were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

    How Toledo's Recovery Funds are Being Spent

    Funding Use

    Funding can be used to replace lost public sector revenue, respond to the far-reaching public health and negative economic impacts of the pandemic, provide premium pay for essential workers, and invest in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure.

    Additional Investment from Interest Earnings

    In 2023, Toledo City Council passed an ordinance to account for the earned interest from the unspent funds. These funds are now being used for blight, demolition, and brownfield site redevelopment.
