American Rescue Plan Resource Hub

Signed into law by President Biden on March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allocates $1.9 trillion to COVID-19 relief and economic recovery. Cities in Oregon will directly receive more than $680 million through the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.

These funds will be provided over two distributions; the first half is available now for metropolitan cities and in mid-June for smaller cities, the second half will be available one year later.  Funds will be available for use through Dec. 31, 2024.

By the Numbers:

  • State of Oregon total = $4.2 billion
  • State of Oregon = $2.6 billion
  • Metro cities (CDBG entitlement cities) = $437.7 million
  • Other cities = $242.9 million
  • Counties = $818 million
  • Capitol Projects (State) = $155 million
