CHENEY – The city of Cheney is the recipient of a $3.49 million American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant. The government funding intends to help communities of all sizes across the country get back on their feet following the economic devastation left in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ARPA fund provides relief for cities, towns, and communities in the United States through State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLRF). Communities with over 50,000 people receive direct funding. Smaller communities, considered non-entitlement units, receive their funds through the state government.
