WHAT IS THE FOUR-YEAR PLAN?
The Four-Year Strategic Plan is a document that outlines the City's goals for cohesive long-term objective, including environmental, land use, investment, and community service projects.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?
As the City seeks to continue reinvigorating its local economy, significant funding has become available through state, federal and other sources. The city has received funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) in the amount of $331 million and we continue to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and many other local, state and federal sources. Spent strategically, these once in-a-generation monies present the opportunity for Buffalo to build upon its achievements and further distinguish itself. The influx of funds and opportunities solidify the need for a Four-Year Strategic plan to be developed with clear intention, to guide spending and expand Buffalo’s upward trends into neighborhoods throughout the city.

HOW WILL THE FOUR-YEAR PLAN BE USED?
Achieving our city's strategic priorities will require coordination across City departments, agencies, and our local, state, and federal partners. In addition, this Plan is companion to other planning efforts initiated by the city, it's departments, and its agencies. While each City department and agencies will seek to implement each action, the Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning will monitor progress in the years to come with updates to this Four-Year Strategic Plan on a yearly basis.
