Resident ARPA Funds Survey

Putting money into homes

As part of pandemic relief efforts, the federal government gave municipalities funds to recover lost income, respond to the health crisis, provide premium pay to essential employees, and invest in local infrastructure. These funds were given as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA for short). 

Swissvale will receive a total of $904,000. Council has already allocated  approximately a quarter of those funds for premium pay, a vaccine incentive for employees, and necessary equipment for the Police and Fire Departments. Council desires to solicit input from the public regarding  priorities for use of the remaining funds. 

Please follow the survey link to provide input. Paper copies of the survey are also available by request from the  Borough Administrative Office and the Swissvale Library. The deadline for completing the survey is noon on August 15, 2022.

Take the Survey.
