Do you have a project or program idea that you think could benefit the Town of Milton? The Selectboard is now accepting project/program proposals for grants made available by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) in 2021 to address the public health and economic crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. ARPA includes money to invest in communities to help protect them from future crises and to remediate impacts caused by the pandemic. The total amount received by the Town of Milton is roughly $3.24 million, and the Selectboard can decide how those funds are spent.
The Milton Selectboard is committed to investing one-time ARPA funds to get the greatest long-term benefit for the community. To date the Selectboard has committed roughly $1.05 million in ARPA funds to the new public works facility, rescue chief position, Milton on the Move part-time position and funding a number of capital purchases. The Selectboard intends to allocate the remaining funds to a combination of projects/programs from the Town (through departments, commissions and committees) and outside entities.
At a public hearing on June 20, 2022, the Selectboard presented an application process for outside entities to apply for ARPA funds through the Town of Milton. The application process was adopted at the Selectboard meeting on July 5, 2022.
