[ARCHIVED] City Seeks Input on Use of Pandemic Aid

ARPA Survey button

Earlier this year, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), and the City of Mountlake Terrace is eligible to receive almost $6 million in federal funds. The ARPA program will provide $350 billion in emergency funding for state, local and tribal governments to address rising costs and falling revenues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.


Input from Mountlake Terrace residents and businesses is desired to help the City Council decide how these funds can best help our community. Please take the new online survey, which lists examples of approved uses for the funding, and rank the categories most important to your household or business. The survey also includes space to share new ideas for the funding.


ARPA dollars are intended to support public health agencies’ response to the pandemic and to stimulate the economy through assistance to households, small businesses and nonprofits, aid to impacted industries, and support for essential workers, as well as investments in infrastructure, including water, sewer, and broadband services.


Please keep in mind that only approved uses are allowed under this law and funds must be committed by the end of 2024. The survey is open now through Sunday, January 2, 2022, and the City Council will receive an update on the number of responses at their January 3 meeting. 


To access the survey or for more information, visit or contact, 425-744-6206.
