NV (STL.News) Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced the “Every Nevadan Recovery Framework,” a State-specific framework for the expenditure of the $2.9 billion the State of Nevada will directly receive from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) to help address the effects of COVID-19.
“Our State’s ability to recover from this pandemic and build a stronger Nevada will be dependent upon the recovery of our residents first. We will focus our efforts on a comprehensive approach that puts individuals and families right at the center,” said Governor Sisolak. “The Every Nevadan Recovery Framework will help prioritize the expenditure of funds for Nevadans – resulting in a successful recovery and a stronger Nevada for future generations.”
Governor Sisolak, along with Treasurer Zach Conine, Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro and Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson developed the framework to initiate a strategic planning process for the expenditure of ARP discretionary funds allocated directly to the State of Nevada. The priorities and guiding principles, along with the stakeholder engagement process outlined in the framework, will serve as a foundation to ensure this federal funding is used in a strategic manner focused on a strong recovery for Nevada families and our economy.
“Thanks to the hard work of President Biden and our congressional delegation, we are about to receive an unprecedented investment into the State of Nevada,” said Treasurer Zach Conine.
