Fort Collins is in this together.

The pandemic has brought serious challenges to Fort Collins, but it’s also proved that we live in an exceptional community that rises up to help one another. At For FoCo, we want to highlight the resilience of our community and how we’re building back stronger.

The City is set to receive $28.1 million of the nearly $6 billion American Rescue Plan Act funds received by Colorado and other communities. These funds can be spent over the course of the next three and a half years. To guide this spending, the City is developing a Fort Collins Recovery Plan.

We want to hear from you! What does a resilient, vibrant recovery for all residents and businesses look like? How can we get there? Share your ideas, thoughts and stories and explore stories and ideas from others below.




Recovery Plan Vision

As we shift from response to recovery, we know we cannot return to the pre-pandemic status quo. Recovery is a multi-faceted, multi-year process requiring strategic nimbleness to address the needs of today and the future. Successful recovery is broader than simply restoring infrastructure, services and the tax base. As our community continues to heal, the vision for recovery is that all Fort Collins residents and businesses are able to participate in a resilient, vibrant and inclusive future.

We cannot do this work alone. Throughout the pandemic, our community banded together in innovative ways to support each other. As we create the Fort Collins Recovery Plan, it is crucial that we are intentionally reaching and listening to diverse community perspectives to achieve an inclusive, long-term recovery plan. By understanding our community’s lived experience throughout the pandemic, we can work collectively to make sure that our polices and practices do not widen the K-shaped recovery (a recovery model where some parts of the economy are recovering while other segments remain stagnant or sink into further disparities).
