Finance Director Jenny Esarey said the city expects to receive around $3.4 million over a two-year period. Streetsboro anticipates receiving around $1.7 million in 2021 and a similar amount in 2022 as well.

The 2021 act is a $1.9 trillion economic COVID-19 stimulus package that was signed into law in mid-March. ARPA provides additional relief to address the continued impact of the pandemic on the country. Through it, $350 billion is being provided to state and local governments.
