American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

During the past several weeks ARC has conducted several meetings to raise awareness among local governments of the funding opportunities of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) – economic stimulus. ARC has many resources and links available at a new section of our website home page –  I have also attached a brief summary as well as many links and other information in the attached ARRA overview.

I cannot stress enough how important this funding opportunity can be to our region and state during this difficult economic time.  I therefore recommend you become familiar with the funding programs (both formula and discretionary) and consider any opportunities to apply as a local government or non-profit.  Please forward this email to any of your peers who may also benefit. If ARC can provide additional information, please let me know.
