~ St. Louis, MO - Mayor Tishaura O. Jones has announced the launch of the Stronger STL website, a platform designed to showcase the transformative impact of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds allocated to the City of St. Louis. The website also aims to provide support for residents and organizations seeking information on funding eligibility and allocation.

According to Mayor Jones, this new platform highlights the city's commitment to building a better St. Louis both now and in the future. "The Stronger STL website provides a direct line of sight into how these funds are being deployed to grow and foster resilience within our communities," she stated.

The Biden administration's allocation of $350 billion to state and local governments has been a vital lifeline for the region, with $498 million dedicated specifically to the City of St. Louis.
