Chaffee Has Yet to Receive Any American Rescue Plan Funding

Chaffee city officials say the city has not received any ARP funds designed to assist local governments recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. ARP was signed into law, back on March 11, by President Joe Biden, but municipalities are still working through 151 pages of federal “guidance” in making plans for expenditure. Officials say the National League of Cities say Chaffee’s share of the $1.9 trillion ARP is $533,776, to be paid in two installments. Officials say finance committee met on May 25 to start talking about priorities but until the city gets a clear indication when the ARP money is coming and exactly how much will be received; no solid decisions” have been made.
