Accelerating Community Recovery.


The American Rescue Plan Act has begun disbursing hundreds of billions of dollars to state and local governments for pandemic recovery and to promote economic development. Prioritizing allocation of funds to generate maximum effect on your local economy presents unique challenges and tremendous opportunities. 

GPS' national team of experts will help optimize the impact of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal funding. Many communities used CARES Act funds for business loans, grants, and to subsidize activities for shifting business models to accommodate pandemic restrictions or offer new and improved pathways to economic growth. ARPA provides communities with broader latitude for eligible use of funds which can be spent through December 31, 2024.
