According to a city press release,
The City of Saginaw is providing two additional weeks to submit ideas and formal proposals through its online ARPA funding proposal portal. The new deadline for submissions is Monday, June 13, 2022.
The City’s submission portal is available for residents, nonprofits, and businesses to submit a general idea on the use of ARPA funds, and as the official grant application for those who have a formal submission. Members of the ARPA Advisory Committee have scheduled numerous Community Engagement Meetings throughout the month of May to assist citizens and organizations with questions they may have about their submissions. Since the meetings
run through the end of May, it was determined that additional time was necessary after the meetings are concluded in May for citizens and organizations to submit their ideas and proposals into the portal.
“From the beginning of this process back in 2021, the City has used various methods to receive input from the community,” said Tim Morales, City Manager. “The City is moving forward with our decision-making process, and we want to make sure that everyone has had an opportunity to provide input. We are extending the submission deadline until June 13 to provide citizens and organizations with adequate time to attend a Community Engagement Meeting and properly submit their funding proposal or idea.”
All members of the community are encouraged to participate in the portal. The City welcomes all submissions, from general ideas to full proposals. All ideas and proposals submitted will be reviewed and considered by the ARPA Advisory Committee, City Council, and City Administration.
