American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds

In September, the Town Council discussed the distribution and use of ARPA funds.  The Council agreed to retain the funds and adopted a policy for the allocation of ARPA funds, as proposed by Councilmembers Ericson and White.  At its October 13 meeting, the Town Council heard a presentation and discussed a request for ARPA funds from Wonders Early Learning at Leland.  The Council agreed to schedule a public hearing on this request at its November 10 meeting.  More information on the request will be included in the November Forecast newsletter.

Eligible Uses of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds

The Town Council asked our Town Attorney for guidance regarding legitimate uses of ARPA money, as set out in the Treasury regulations and commentary.  The Council would like to share this memo with residents.  We also hope this will be responsive to a request we received from a resident, who asked that such a memo be made available so that residents considering ideas for how these funds might be used would also be aware of what programs or projects might or might not be legitimate.
