Idea Category: Equity & Opportunity | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

Lansing Mayor Andy Schor and the city council approved nearly $2 million in American Rescue Plan funds for community groups to boost their impact. Schor worked to ensure investments went to organizations providing services to diverse demographics and locations within the city, such as helping those experiencing housing and food insecurity, supporting initiatives for LGBTQ+ youth and other youth education programs, and improving access to health care. Mayor Schor hopes that this will be a step forward after the effects of COVID-19 as well as help the residents who use these organizations.

As reported by WILX, “These funds provided by the federal government through ARPA are going to help fund some great programs all across Lansing and for Lansing residents. This diverse group of organizations are doing great work in our community, especially after the effects of COVID on Lansing. Being able to help share this one-time funding to boost their programs as a result of the COVID pandemic is a fantastic step forward,” said Schor.
