Recovery Plan Performance Report
All metropolitan cities and counties with a population greater than 250,000 residents that received an award from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF) are required by the U.S. Department of Treasury to produce an annual Recovery Plan Performance Report (Recovery Plan). The City of Charlotte’s Recovery Plan provides information on Charlotte’s spending or planned spending for this funding, and how the city plans to ensure program outcomes are achieved in an effective and equitable manner. The 2022 report includes project-specific information on spending and performance. Subsequent annual Recovery Plans will be posted on the city’s website and will cover that 12 month period.
The city received the first tranche of this funding in May 2021 and the second tranche in July 2022. The city is continuing to develop a spending plan for these funds targeted at those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Recovery Plan provides a general overview of potential categories of investment, which include housing and homelessness, workforce development, community vitality, and operational support.
