About the American Rescue Plan
The United States House and Senate passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) in March 2021, allowing for the Office of President Biden's American Rescue Plan to provide direct financial relief to Americans, contain COVID-19, and rescue the economy.
The City of Pittsburgh was awarded $335 million through the ARPA to aid in pandemic relief and economic recovery. Of that amount, the City of Pittsburgh allocated approximately $70 million to the URA to fund various activities that support affordable housing, small businesses, commercial corridor revitalization, community developments, infrastructure projects, and more.
