American Rescue Plan Funds

The City of Boise has a once in a generation opportunity to invest in our community and meet our residents’ most pressing needs with American Rescue Plan funds. This investment will allow us to rebuild a stronger, more equitable economy as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our city received $36 million in local recovery funds to respond to the ongoing  pandemic, fill revenue shortfalls and support those hit hardest by the COVID-19 crisis. While local governments have until 2024 to allocate funds and until 2026 to spend them, the City of Boise is committed to supporting our local businesses, childcare providers and those on the frontlines in the coming months.

To ensure our recovery efforts match the needs of the community, especially those who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, we want to hear from you. It’s your ideas, solutions, and insight that will help us invest these funds most effectively.

No idea is too big, or too small to be considered.

Top Priorities

The City of Boise, in collaboration with community partners – nonprofits, resettlement agencies, school districts –  identified the five key areas of need: Housing, Mental Health, Food Security Small Business Support and Childcare. We are looking to you to share your ideas of how to allocate funds.  

Under each priority area, please share your idea(s) and the impact(s) they would have on our most vulnerable residents.
