American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Budget

On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act 2021 (ARPA) was signed which launched the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) to provide $350 billion in nationwide emergency funding for states, municipalities, counties, tribes, and territories. Of the $350 billion, the City of Brawley will receive $6,274,056 in one-time funding. Funding will be received in two equal disbursements of $3,137,028, with the first payment received in July 2021 and the second expected in July 2022.

The emergency economic stimulus bill provides fiscal aid to address the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. ARPA provides funding to meet local needs, including COVID-19 response, replacing public sector revenue loss, premium pay for essential workers, improving facilities to ensure health and safety, increasing usage of outdoor spaces, as well as investing in public water and wastewater infrastructure, and broadband. Each agency has the flexibility to determine how to use fiscal recovery funds best to meet its needs.

Updates are provided every six months until all funds are expended.
