The Select Board is seeking input on investment priorities for American Rescue Act Plan (ARPA) funds.
The Town of Acton will receive $7,072,733 in funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. On September 13, 2021 the Select Board established a process for allocating the ARPA funds. The Board reviewed a draft list of investment priorities from an initial needs assessment and launched a community engagement process to solicit feedback from the public. After receiving this feedback the Board will consider voting to approve an ARPA investment plan on October 18, 2021.
The comment period is officially open between now and October 13th.
There are three ways you can share feedback and any new ideas you have for investing ARPA funds.
