Louisville Mayor Announces Proposal for First Round of ARP Money

Louisville Mayor Announces Proposal for First Round of ARP Money

Here is a break-down of the mayor’s proposal: “The goal of our program is to keep people safely housed. So to create housing stability, this is really important, and to get this out of the court system. The stress of being in court is tremendous,” Marilyn Harris, Director of Office of Housing, said. COVID-19 response and vaccination activities: $10,000,000Childcare emergency and safety supplies: $1,500,000Suicide prevention: $400,000Residential services for substance abuse and addiction: $1,200,000

“We were supporting 60,000 jobs prior to the pandemic and putting off $3.5 billion in economic impact, so this marketing campaign will be going to recapture those visitors, recapture that economic development for the city, and employ those 60,000 people again,” Stacey Yates with Louisville Tourism said. Under the proposal, Louisville Tourism would receive more than $5.6 million, which they said would go toward a marketing campaign.

The Court Eviction Diversion Program would receive $10 million, under the mayor’s proposal. In 2021 alone, they’ve helped 658 families facing eviction stay in their homes. The mayor proposed spending nearly $39 million on Louisville’s urgent needs such as COVID-19 related health needs, rental assistance and economic recovery with a focus on downtown.

“These are initiatives that tackle immediate challenges, providing funds for agencies that can very quickly deploy the money and have an immediate impact,” Mayor Fischer said in a release. “Because while our city and nation are reopening – more people vaccinated and more of us enjoying restaurants, concerts and shops – there are still far too many who continue to suffer the health and economic impacts of COVID.” The mayor also launched on online forum for the community to provide their input on what should be down with the remaining funds.

Louisville Tourism marketing funds: $5,682,500Downtown events and activation coordination: $500,000Enhanced ambassador and security program for downtown and Waterfront Park: $3,450,000

Court eviction diversion program: $10,000,000Utility assistance program: $5,000,000Security deposit and rental assistance: $1,000,000Temporary support for emergency food distribution: $250,000 Vulnerable Resident Stabilization Needs
