Mayor O’Connor Shares Proposal for City ARPA Funds; Board of Aldermen to Workshop Proposal

To serve the City’s recovery and future, and in keeping with the intended use of the American Rescue Plan Act - Federal Government’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF), Mayor O’Connor has shared a proposal for the City’s $10.6 Million allocation. Based on the needs facing our community and city operations, the Mayor’s proposal focuses largely on the areas of public health, public safety, equitable community and economic support, homelessness, and infrastructure resiliency.



"The COVID-19 pandemic and the events of the past year altered the trajectory of many lives.  It changed what the community values as important. The projects and programs identified in this plan support broad, resilient, effective, and equitable public services to all who live and work within The City of Frederick,” shared Mayor Michael O’Connor.  


The SLFRF is part of the larger American Rescue Plan Act and aims to address the negative impacts COVID-19 has had on public health, safety, businesses, and local governments. SLFRF is designed to focus on six key areas know as expenditure categories.  These areas are Public Heath; Negative Economic Impacts; Service to Disproportionally Impacted Communities; Premium Pay; Water, Sewer, and Broadband Infrastructure; and Revenue Replacement. 


The Board of Aldermen will review the proposal next Wednesday, October 13, 2021 during its public workshop. To watch or participate in this meeting, visit for more information.
