The City of Dayton has announced the newest investments of Dayton Recovery Plan funds following approval by the City Commission on Nov. 9.
The Dayton Recovery Plan (DRP) is a $138 million framework for community COVID relief and investment for the future, made possible by the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
The Dayton Recovery Plan is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to address the infrastructure, economic and equity issues that exist in the city by using a data-driven approach to analyze socio-economic, health, and demographic data to make informed funding decisions. These investments directly impact minority communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and long-standing economic and social inequities in Dayton. The Dayton Recovery Plan is our city’s innovative plan to utilize our share of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Based on a modified CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) formula, the Local Fiscal Relief section of the ARPA bill provided $138 million to the City of Dayton and is the largest grant in Dayton’s history.
