Mayor Bibb to join President Biden at the White House for signing of historic CHIPS Act

Mayor Bibb to highlight the impact of Biden-Harris administration investments in Cleveland at White House meeting tomorrow


Sept. 6, 2022 — Cleveland — Mayor Justin M. Bibb will head to the White House tomorrow to meet with President Joe Biden and members of his administration. He will be joined by mayors and leaders from across Ohio to discuss the impact of recent federal legislation—including the American Rescue Plan, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the CHIPS Act—on Cleveland and communities across the state.   
“This meeting is a great opportunity to not only thank President Biden and the administration for their ongoing support but also take a comprehensive look at the bigger picture in Ohio,” Mayor Bibb said. “While Ohio’s communities have different needs, there are ways to collaborate that may enable us to think bigger and to stretch these dollars even further.”  
The meeting, “Communities in Action: Building a Better Ohio,” will include elected leaders from across Ohio, including the mayors of Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo, Akron, Youngstown, Elyria, Lorain, Lima, Lakewood, and Athens.  
A recent report from the Ohio Mayors Alliance offers insight on how member cities are putting recent investments from the Biden-Harris administration to work across the state.  
Last week, the Bibb administration announced plans to spend $102.5 million in ARPA funding across six of the mayor’s 10 priority areas, which will directly impact an estimated 284,700 Cleveland residents.  
“I look forward to sharing how we are leveraging these once-in-a-generation investments to solve some of Cleveland’s greatest challenges,” Mayor Bibb added. “We received the 8th largest American Rescue Plan allocation in the country and intend to put every penny to the best possible use.”
