American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding

The City of Wichita has been awarded $72.4 Million in ARPA funding. This funding has been incorporated into the 2022-2023 Adopted Budget. The spending plan is based on best practices and guidance from professional organizations and feedback and directions from the City Council.

Prior to recommending ARPA allocations to support the operating budget, staff reviewed guiding principles and best practice recommendations developed by a variety of professional organizations, including the Governmental Finance Officers Association (GFOA). Some guiding principles include:

  • Focusing on non-recurring costs, since ARPA funding is non-sustainable after 2024; and,
  • Coordinating with regional partners, to complement rather than duplicate programs.

The recommended ARPA funding allocations are designed to align to specific ARPA eligible areas. Most recommended funding is aligned to:

  • Category A: Public Health Emergency and Associated Negative Economic Impacts 
  • Category C: Provision of Government Services
