Municipal Webinar

How Municipalities can make meaningful investments with ARPA dollars

Wednesday, September 15| 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Massachusetts cities and towns have received $3.4 billion dollars through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. These dollars present an opportunity to make critical investments in communities and especially those that were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. This federal funding can help set the stage for an equitable and resilient recovery.

Join us for a discussion with Doug Howgate from the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation on how cities and towns can make these strategic investments for a more prosperous and equitable region.

Speakers include:

  • Lizzi Weyant, Director of Government Affairs, Metropolitan Area Planning Council
  • Doug Howgate, Executive Vice President, Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation
