Help accessing federal recovery dollars

The federal government is providing cities with an unprecedented amount of federal recovery aid, including the American Rescue Plan. Yet cities are struggling to navigate the rules that come with the support. Enter the COVID Federal Assistance e311 program. This website, launched as part of a partnership between Bloomberg Philanthropies and the U.S. Conference of Mayors provides city leaders all the information they need to properly maximize and hold on to response and recovery funds for their cities. 


Welcome to the Bloomberg Cities Network

"Local governments play a critical role in tackling the biggest challenges we face, from combating the COVID-19 pandemic to reducing carbon emissions. At Bloomberg Philanthropies, we’re working hard to help cities develop effective strategies – and to spread them around the world. The Bloomberg Cities Network, which we developed in partnership with Johns Hopkins, is a place for innovators in government to come together and hear about what’s working, share lessons, and access resources. We hope you will take full advantage of it – and that it will allow you to expand your ambitions and accelerate your work."
