A geographic approach is key to your community’s recovery

As the nation begins to bounce back from the pandemic, government organizations are using a geographic approach to speed up their economic recovery. Through federal funding programs, such as the American Rescue Plan (ARP), government organizations now have the funding and opportunity to create healthier environments, support economic growth, and remove barriers to equity by using the latest in geographic information system (GIS) technology. Esri, the global leader in GIS, provides the most advanced mapping technology governments can use to align their economic recovery efforts with stimulus funding.

GIS supports federal stimulus program efforts

Find solutions that build resilience

Esri provides hundreds of ready-to-use, focused maps and apps that meet the goals of the federal stimulus programs. Reduce the time it takes to deploy geoenabled solutions in your organization and start improving your community's health, economy, infrastructure, emergency response, and access to housing and broadband.


Support diversity and racial equity with data

The public health crisis exposed just how deep the need is to address diversity and racial inequalities. These gaps can be bridged by identifying at-risk populations at the very point where they live, learn, and work. GIS can provide insights through demographic data, analysis, and maps to ensure that your funded projects do not leave communities behind but create opportunities for all to succeed. 

Know where to make the biggest impact

The national stimulus programs provide opportunities to stimulate economies and build a sustainable future. A geographic approach to prioritizing projects and spending highlights which efforts will have the greatest positive impacts on communities. Esri has complimentary datasets you can plug into your existing work and analysis to make well-informed decisions.
