Recovery Planning#

Recovery Planning

The City of Fort Collins is working to create a long-term Recovery Plan that identifies community priorities for recovery. We are also set to receive approximately $28.1 million of the nearly $6 billion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds received by Colorado and other communities. These funds are being used to invest in short- and long-term economic, environmental and community recovery. 

As we develop the Recovery Plan and prioritize spending of ARPA funding, we want to hear your ideas about what a vibrant and resilient recovery looks like for our community and what priorities should be focused on as we work to build back stronger.
