Omaha Flush With Pandemic Relief Funds. How To Spend It?

The city of Omaha is planning to distribute 112-million-dollars in American Rescue Plan Act funds.   The United Way of the Midlands will distribute 10-million-dollars of the funding to non-profit organizations, while the Omaha Community Foundation will hand out five-million-dollars to non-profits.  Mayor Jean Stothert says the city has already received half of its expected American Rescue Plan Act funding.  Grant committees will decide how the money is distributed, applications will be accepted from February 15th through April 1st and funds will be awarded in June.
