ARPA Fiscal Recovery Funds in NH: Virtual Resources & Information Fair

Monday, July 26, 2021
10:00 a.m. -11:45 a.m.


Free to members of the NH Municipal Association


In addition to direct funding for cities, towns and counties through the CLFRF (Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds), the ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) has created numerous programs and opportunities across New Hampshire. This virtual event—a collaboration between Senator Jeanne Shaheen's Office, NHMA, CDFA, NH Association of Counties, NH Charitable Foundation, and NH Center for Nonprofits—provides local officials an opportunity to hear from a variety of stakeholders, entities, and state agencies about efforts being undertaken to use ARPA funds in ways that directly or indirectly affect local government. The goal of this webinar is to provide local officials an introduction to how various funds are being implemented in New Hampshire and to spur collaboration and partnership in implementation of ARPA funds.
