North Las Vegas constituents invited to provide input on ARPA Fund priorities

The City of North Las Vegas invites constituents, businesses, and community organizations to provide input on community needs that have developed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey, available in English and Spanish, will be available through August 20, 2021. North Las Vegas constituents are also invited to participate in listening tours with the City Council and local elected officials. 

Earlier this year, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The $1.9 trillion package is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including public health and economic impacts. 

The City of North Las Vegas will receive a total of nearly $47 million in two installments, with 50% (approximately $23 million) provided in May and the balance delivered approximately 12 months later.

The 7-question survey is available online, at all North Las Vegas Library District locations, Silver Mesa Recreation Center, Neighborhood Recreation Center, SkyView Multigenerational Center, North Las Vegas City Hall, and at community events.  

Constituents are also invited to share their ideas at one of four North Las Vegas listening tours. Registration for the listening tours is highly encouraged.
