Albany's COVID Recovery Task Force is looking for input in a second public survey.

The city and its COVID Recovery Task Force are seeking input on the best way to use $80.7 million in American Rescue Plan Funds. Officials say public feedback is essential to ensuring that the discretionary ARP funds are best used to benefit the community. The survey will be available online through July 20th.

The first public survey distributed earlier this summer focused on assessing COVID-19 recovery needs. The second survey focuses on prioritizing recommendations – general overall priorities, level of urgency and level of assistance needed.
