Dayton Recovery Plan Logo

The Dayton Recovery Plan is a roadmap for Dayton's investment of $138 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds dedicated to recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Dayton's goal for the funding is to create long-term transformational and sustainable impacts in targeted areas, as well as special initiatives with impact citywide. 

Projects and proposals were developed using a data-driven approach analyzing socio-economic, health, and demographic data to make informed funding decisions. Plan priorities were identified following an extensive community input process.
