City of Lowell Seeks Public Input on Use of American Rescue Plan Funding
LOWELL, MA – The City of Lowell is seeking input from members of the community on the use of federal funding that the City will receive under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Lowell residents, business and community organizations are encouraged to review information on eligible uses of the funding and submit proposals to the City by completing on online form available at: lowellma.gov/ARPAfunding.
The American Rescue Plan Act, signed by President Biden in March, provided $350 billion in emergency funding to state, local, territorial and tribal governments to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 crisis. It is anticipated that the City of Lowell will receive $75.9 million in funding from ARPA, comprised of $54.4 million that the City is entitled to as a “metropolitan city” and an additional $21.5 million that will be received through the formula-based distribution of funding issued to Middlesex County given its non-functioning status.
