ARRA Funding

Cincinnati's - American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Reporting

The City of Cincinnati is working with the federal government to receive funds granted through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act or ARRA).  The City’s Recovery Act Projects are available for review and will be included in the Federal Government’s reporting requirements due on October 10, 2009. Additionally, the City maintains records of all vendors paid with ARRA funds that may not be required for reporting to the federal government.  A final report will be available on www.recovery.gov by October 30, 2009 pending federal review and approval. The City is required to submit quarterly reports to the federal government and updates will be posted on the City’s website as the Federal review proceeds. 

Through the Recovery Act, the City will service as a prime recipient, a sub-recipient, and will collaborate on various other projects.  As of September 30, 2009 the City of Cincinnati has received 4 federal grants totaling $25,393,025, which include the Community Development Black Grant (CDBG-R), the Homeless Prevention and Rapid ReHousing Grant (HPRP), the Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG), and the Public Safety Partnership and Community Policing Grant (COPS).  As a sub-recipient of funds to the State of Ohio, the City has received 4 awards totaling $4,874,942 for the Department of Transportation & Engineering and the Police Department.  These awards will be reported by the State directly to https://www.federalreporting.gov/ .

There are also several ARRA projects that are pending where the City has applied for but not received official notification or contract information.  For example, the City anticipates receiving the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) for eight projects totaling $3,520,600 but has yet to receive federal notification.  The City will begin reporting on these funds once the EECBG has been officially awarded.

The Banks Project and Waldvogel Project are two additional projects not listed on the federal report for for which the City is participating.  The City is a partner in these projects; however, the City will have no reporting requirements as The Banks Project will be awarded to and administered through Hamilton County and the Waldvogel Project to and through the State of Ohio.

Information will be updated periodically so please check back often.
