Mpls. Mayor Jacob Frey plans to use initial federal funds for violence prevention and police resources.

The Biden administration announced that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence can use American Rescue Plan funding to rehire police officers to pre-pandemic levels, pay overtime, upgrade technology and boost prosecution of gun crimes.

The White House also declared Wednesday that the administration will convene a Community Violence Intervention Collaborative of 15 jurisdictions, including Minneapolis and St. Paul, that are committing to use a portion of their COVID-19 relief to address summer violence.

Over the next year and a half, the administration will meet with local officials as part of that collaborative.
