[ARCHIVED] Creating a Community-Driven ARPA Funding Plan

Norfolk residents can provide their priorities several ways

NORFOLK, VA – The City of Norfolk received $154.1 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. Residents can provide their priorities to help establish a collaborative, community-driven plan through online tools and newly added drop boxes located throughout the city. The two January public meetings have been cancelled due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.

To provide residents without internet access with an opportunity to have their priorities heard, drop boxes with comment cards are available at the following locations:

  • Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library
  • Jordan- Newby Anchor Branch Library
  • Richard A. Tucker Memorial Library
  • Berkley Recreation Center
  • East Ocean View Recreation Center
  • Lambert's Point Community Center
  • Norview Community Center
  • Huntersville Multi-Service Center

Feedback from these resources and from previous public meetings can be viewed with the new Public Engagement Dashboard, an online collection of all input provided by residents that is updated daily. All ARPA funding tools and information is available at

Resident feedback will be used to create a community-based City Manager's recommendation for City Council consideration on ARPA funding. City Council will hold a public hearing once they have received the community-based City Manager's Proposed Plan.
