Budget Healing Event with City of Durham, Durham County & NCCU

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

This event is an opportunity for the residents of Durham to discuss outstanding needs in our communities, share our common goals, and generate ideas for how to spend the more than $50 million that is coming to Durham as a result of the American Rescue Plan Act that was passed by the US Congress earlier this year. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from community leaders, discuss current funding opportunities, and contribute their own ideas for how budgeting can support community healing.

Notice of Virtual Community Meeting
Local budgets impact the lives of each and every Durham resident. Yet, too often people feel disconnected from the funding decisions made by elected officials. This year the City and County of Durham are partnering with North Carolina Central University to help build stronger relationships between residents and community leaders.

This event is an opportunity for the residents of Durham to discuss outstanding needs in our communities, share our common goals, and generate ideas for how to spend the more than $50 million that is coming to Durham as a result of the American Rescue Plan Act that was passed by the US Congress earlier this year. These funds may be used to:

  • Support public health expenditures
  • Address negative economic impacts caused by the public health emergency
  • Aid the communities and populations hardest hit by the crisis
  • Provide premium pay for essential workers
  • Invest in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from community leaders, discuss current funding opportunities, and contribute their own ideas for how budgeting can support community healing. We hope you will join us in centering the voices of Durham residents most impacted by COVID-19’s health, housing, educational, and economic impacts.

Spanish language translation will be available.

The community meeting will be streamed live on YouTube and will occur in the Zoom platform:
