The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allocated nearly 180 million dollars directly to Vermont’s municipalities to spend on projects related to economic recovery. Across Vermont, elected local leaders will be developing plans to invest these funds for maximum impact. Join the Vermont Community Leadership Network on January 14th at 10:30 for a conversation with Katie Buckley of the Vermont League of Cities & Towns, and other local leaders. This online workshop is designed to help interested Vermonters understand the different parameters for spending ARPA funds. It will also include tips on how to most effectively work with other community members, potential partners, and the municipality to achieve desired outcomes. The final portion of the workshop will be an opportunity for idea-sharing and story swapping from local leaders across the state.

About ARPA

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) included $350 billion in pandemic-related aid for state and local governments. Vermont will receive more than $1.25 billion of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funding from ARPA. While the legislature and the governor will determine how more than $1 billion of that funding will be spent, Congress directed nearly $200 million of that funding directly to Vermont’s cities, towns, and villages. City councils and Selectboards will have discretion over how to spend their allocations. The State of Vermont will not be allowed to add any additional rules to the roughly $200 million distributed directly to municipalities.  

Mendon will be receiving approximately $300,000.
