On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 into law. The $1.9 trillion package is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including the public health and economic impacts.

The City of Eugene received an allocation of $35,908,036 in CSLFRF funding in two phases of $17, 954,018, with the first phase received on June 1, 2021 and the second phase on June 1, 2022.
