Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza has signed a 124 million dollar measure which will spend the rest of the pandemic relief funding the city got from the fed. 31 million dollars for housing. Twenty million for infrastructure improvements in broadband, water and sewer.

"As we continue to recover from the pandemic, the funding provided through the American Rescue Plan Act will provide historic investments in housing, infrastructure, community organizations, youth, economic stability, and so much more, positioning Providence to recover and grow in the years to come, said Mayor Elorza.

The measure also paves the way for ten million dollars to fund reparations.
