Recover Delaware: Focus on Funding
Institute for Public Administration
To support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, the federal government has allocated unprecedented funding amounts directly to local governments and to federal grant programs addressing priorities ranging from housing, infrastructure, and premium worker pay to economic development, hazard mitigation, and resilience planning. Leveraging these funds for maximum impact will require a strategic approach informed by knowledge of community needs, funding opportunities, and guidelines. This Recover Delaware brief aims to inform efforts by Delaware’s state and local governments to strategize and prioritize recovery investments, with a focus on American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds allocated directly to governments through the U.S. Treasury.
