WHAT IS MONTGOMERY THRIVE?
The American Rescue Plan Act was signed into federal law in March 2021. This Act provides state and local governments with financial assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Federal law allows these funds to be used in a variety of ways, from funding public health efforts that combat the spread of the virus to providing support to populations disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
Montgomery leaders are eager to hear input from the community on how these funds should be put to use in our community. The Montgomery County Commission and the City of Montgomery partnered to launch Montgomery Thrive as a platform to give Montgomery residents the opportunity to offer input on how the American Rescue Plan funds are utilized for the betterment of the region.
Residents of Montgomery County are encouraged to share their input by completing the online community survey.
INVESTING IN MONTGOMERY
Montgomery Thrive is excited to invite local businesses, nonprofit and faith-based entities, and healthcare providers to provide feedback on how the pandemic impacted their business operations.
This feedback will be utilized to help local leaders develop programming and projects designed to support the most pressing needs of the community. Before completing the survey, please take a moment to review the FAQ section of the website and read the overview of the Final Rule for further clarity on how these funds can be expended.
