Sacramento, Calif. – During the Sacramento City Council’s September 14 meeting, councilmembers unanimously voted to approve a request by Councilmember Sean Loloee (District 2) to dedicate $5 million in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds to Council District 2.
The funds will go towards helping businesses combat the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, supporting youth employment, and supporting pilot programs that encourage additional private housing construction to help low-income individuals.
“The allocation of these funds is a matter of equity and will go a long way towards addressing the most pressing needs of our community,” said Councilmember Loloee. “I’m grateful my colleagues on the council recognize that given the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on District 2, significant and continued investments are needed.”
Highlights of Councilmember Loloee’s spending plan include:
- Dedicating funds to pilot programs to support private housing construction
- Allocating funds towards addressing safety, security, and blight along the Marysville Blvd. and Del Paso Blvd. corridors
- Using resources to support youth and adult employment pilot programs.
The American Rescue Plan, signed into law by President Joe Biden, is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including the public health and economic impacts. The plan provides direct federal aid to eligible local governments.
