City Seeks Ideas for ARPA Funds Use by August 25, 2022

The City of Columbus has authorized the CDA to develop plans for the use of the ARPA funds allocated to the City. With the purpose of, “enabling the City to provide wholesome homes, a decent living environment and adequate places of employment to City residents,” the CDA welcomes project proposals from groups and organizations that will address at least one of the following areas: 

  • Replace lost Public Sector Revenue.
  • Support the COVID-19 public health and economic response.
  • Provide premium pay for eligible workers performing essential work.
  • Invest in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure.
  • General Government Services.

We are particularly interested in projects and investments that demonstrate long-term community benefit and do not create additional unfunded obligations for the City once the ARPA funds have been exhausted. In addition to developing CDA programs to invest these funds, the CDA will collect, evaluate and rank all proposals before forwarding the results to the City Council for their consideration. ARPA funds must be spent before December 31, 2024. 

Application Timeframe:

  • Application Period Opens August 1, 2022 
  • Application Period Closes August 25, 2022 
  • CDA Review Period is August 26 – September 15, 2022 
  • City Council Receives Recommendations September 20, 2022 
  • City Council Approves allocations October 4, 2022 

You can download the application, fill it out, and send it to the City Administrator by email at cityadministrator@columbuswi.us or mailed / delivered to City Hall, located at 105 N. Dickason Blvd.
