American Rescue Plan Act funds recommendations

June 14, 2021

As Detroit recovers from the impact of COVID-19 and the state rapidly approaches the lift of all restrictions on July 1st,  Detroit Future City is pleased to provide our recommendations for the American Rescue Plan Act. Many of our recommendations are based on our recently released State of Economic Equity Report published in May.

“The State of Economic Equity in Detroit,” illustrates the deep disparities that persist in Detroit and provides recommendations that provide a path to an economically equitable Detroit in which all Detroiters are meeting their unique needs, prospering, and fully and fairly participating in all aspects of economic life within a thriving city and region.
