ARPA Advisory Committee

The Waitsfield ARPA Advisory Committee is tasked with collecting ideas from the community about how Waitsfield might consider spending it's $506,081.79 in American Rescue Plan Act funding.   Upon collecting project ideas and requests, the Committee will work to prioritize projects and ultimately make a recommendation to the Selectboard about how the funds should be spent.  Projects will minimally need to meet the Treasury's ARPA requirements for spending as outlined in the State and Fiscal Recovery Fund's Final Rule.  If you have any questions please contact Town Administrator, Annie Decker-Dell'Isola (802) 496-2218 ext.5 or via email at [email protected].
