Resilient Recovery Dashboard
In collaboration with the community, the City of Fort Collins has created a Recovery Plan to guide long-term response and rebuilding from the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan seeks to leverage this historical opportunity to make bold, long-term investments to achieve a recovery where Fort Collins residents and businesses can participate in a resilient, vibrant and inclusive future.
After extensive engagement with community members, businesses and local partners, four specific themes emerged: Health, Equity & Community Resilience, Economic Recovery and Environmental Resilience.
This dashboard is a snapshot of the community’s progress in achieving recovery and includes projects funded by the City’s $28.1 million of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF).

Equity & Community Resilience focuses on creating a more connected, vibrant and inclusive community for all. It includes taking a community-led approach to recovery, focusing on fostering a sense of belonging and taking action to ensure all who live here can thrive.
Economic impacts from the pandemic on businesses, employers and employees are still being felt throughout the community. In order to have robust economic recovery, both individuals and businesses must be supported.
