Stories of Impact



Using ARPA to Support Community Development and Economic Revitalization to Drive the Biggest Impact. This past March, the American Rescue Plan provided over $300 billion in flexible financial aid to America’s states, cities, towns, villages, and tribal governments. Join us this Friday, October 1st, at 1:00PM EDT to learn more about how municipalities are using American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to support community development and economic revitalization in their hardest hit neighborhoods. Our panel will provide analysis of ARPA regulations as well and insights from NDC on how communities can make the most out of emergency relief funds.
