The Oakley City Council is seeking input from the community on ideas to assist with Oakley’s economic recovery and encourages residents to take a brief survey.
The city will receive $10,177,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. One-half of the funds were received in July 2021, and the second half will be received in July 2022. Funds must be obligated by December 2024 and spent by December 2026. The survey will close on Sunday, Jan. 16.
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion economic recovery bill that was signed into law by President Biden in March. Within the ARPA, the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund provides $130 billion for local governments split evenly between municipalities and counties to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts.
