Deadline for ARPA proposals for Town of Groton is June 30
Groton — The deadline for the Town of Groton’s call for proposals to fund community projects and initiatives with American Rescue Plan Act funds is June 30.
The application was released to community partners on May 13 with a deadline to apply by June 30. The town is looking to allocate between $1,500,000 and $2,900,000 in American Rescue Plan funds toward community projects and recovery initiatives.
The Town Council approved the creation of six community recovery categories as a framework for allocating American Rescue Plan funds: economic development and resiliency; infrastructure and transportation; parks and recreation; human services; arts and culture; ARPA administration and others.
“The creation of these six Community Recovery Categories will serve as barometers for Groton’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Groton’s philosophy is to address pressing needs created by the pandemic and also to use the stimulus funds as investments that enhance Groton’s quality of life and economic outlook for the long-term,” town Mayor Juan Melendez Jr. said in a statement.
