City of Providence Seal PVD Rescue Plan

Community Engagement

The COVID-19 pandemic created an economic and public health crisis, especially felt in Providence’s hardest hit communities. People of color, immigrants and low-wage workers in Providence, and across the state, have been deeply impacted.

That is why the City of Providence is committed to a recovery that centers racial equity, sustainability, and an inclusive economy. The Providence Rescue Plan is part of a larger federal coordinated effort to bring direct and immediate relief to families and workers.

In May 2021, the City of Providence created the COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency Task Force, made up of Providence community leaders, to provide recommendations on how to use the City’s ARPA funds, with a commitment to community engagement and ensuring that funding goes where it is needed most.

In addition to the work of the Task Force, the City of Providence directly engaged community members through surveys and business roundtables to inform spending decisions. Learn more about the findings of this community engagement process below.
