Mayor Jorge Elorza announced the approval of a $10 million COVID-19 Equity Program Budget by the City Council. The City Council and Elorza Administration are partnering with United Way to construct a COVID-19 Equity Fund, which uses over $1.7 million in federal American Rescue Plan dollars. The program aims to close racial wealth and equity gaps within Providence.  “The Municipal Reparations Commission and community members dedicated extensive time and efforts to outline their 11-point investment plan. I know that the budget is driven by the needs and priorities of the community and it will move the ball forward in closing the existing racial wealth and equity gaps,” added Mayor Jorge Elorza.
