SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The City of South Bend has announced that $25 million of the American Rescue Plan funds will be dedicated to revitalizing some of the city’s neighborhoods.

In a partnership with 466 Works, the city says that this money will repair and improve sidewalks, vacant lots, and other general needs in the Erskine Park, Southeast, and West Side Neighborhoods.

“This is a neighborhood that had gone through some tough times. Obviously when you see vacant lots this close to the city's core you know that there have been some challenges over the years,” said South Bend Mayor James Mueller.

Mayor Mueller also said that community leaders and members coming together made this new project a possibility.
