Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund

The Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund convened five policy teams, widely representative of the Fund and its community partners, to identify priorities for investment of state American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. The groups consisted of over 100 people from local government, philanthropy, non-profit, and community-based organizations—tasked with developing recommendations addressing childhood well-being, food security, housing stability, public health, and workforce development. All the recommended investments are consistent with Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds guidance released by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Some might also be supported with funds Ohio will receive through other provisions of ARPA. In many instances, these recommended investments reflect areas where the Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund, Cuyahoga County, and the City of Cleveland have already made similar private and public investments.
