American Rescue Plan Act Funds

The City of Palatka is receiving American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding in the amount of $5,234,421.00. 

The program ensures that governments have the resources needed to: 

• Fight the pandemic and support families and businesses struggling with its public health and economic impacts,

• Maintain vital public services, even amid declines in revenue, and

• Build a strong, resilient, and equitable recovery by making investments that support long-term growth and opportunity.


Funding must fit into one of the following four statutory categories:

To respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts 

To respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to such eligible workers of the recipient, or by providing grants to eligible employers that have eligible workers who performed essential work;

For the provision of government services, to the extent of the reduction in revenue of such recipient due to the COVID–19 public health emergency, relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year of the recipient prior to the emergency; and to make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure.

These four uses are split into 7 summary expenditure categories:

  1. Public Health
  2. Negative Economic Impacts
  3. Services to Disproportionately Impacted Communities
  4. Premium Pay
  5. Infrastructure
  6. Revenue Replacement
  7. Administrative
