Recovery Plan Performance Report

Like many cities across the nation, the COVID-19 pandemic substantially impacted the health of residents, the quality of life in neighborhoods, and the overall functioning of the local economy in Cleveland. To help turn the tide on the pandemic, address the negative economic consequences that have resulted, and begin on the path toward a productive, substantial and equitable economic recovery, Cleveland was allocated $511,721,590 million in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) which must be spend by December 31, 2026. This total funding amount is the eighth largest award in the nation. The City of Cleveland plans to use these funds to:

  • Minimize the suffering and burden of the people and businesses in our community that have been impacted by the coronavirus;
  • Better position all people and businesses in our community to be ready for and take advantage of the recovery; and
  • Make sure all people and businesses are better off as a result of the recovery efforts we undertake so that we can become a more equitable community.

As a part of the transparency and accountability requirements from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, cities with a population that exceeds 250,000 residents are required to produce a Recovery Plan Performance Report that provides information on any projects or programs using these funds, how the community has been engaged in the process, how the City is ensuring program outcomes are achieved in an effective and equitable manner, and to track and report programmatic success and outcomes. These annual and quarterly reports can be accessed through the links below.
