American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds
About the American Rescue Plan Act
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), also known as the COVID-19 Stimulus Package, is a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package signed into law in March 2021. The program is intended to address the economic and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The American Rescue Plan Act allocates $350 billion to eligible state, local, territorial, and tribal governments.
Through ARPA, the City of Jurupa Valley has been allocated $28 million in two equal installments. The first $14 million was received in November 2021 and the second payment was received in November 2022.
