City of New Rochelle Launches ARPA Website
To increase public awareness of and engagement in the process through which the City of New Rochelle will utilize American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, the City has created a dedicated website www.newrochellearpa.org. The site will be used for information and serve as a portal for funding applications.
The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021, provided $350 billion in emergency funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments for economic relief and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. New Rochelle will receive $37 million in two tranches. New Rochelle’s website, created by the City’s consultant, provides detailed information on the ARPA as well as planned uses of the local funds available.
“The ARPA provides unprecedented support to communities like New Rochelle, and we are determined to utilize this valuable funding to achieve a comprehensive recovery, with a special focus on strengthening our social, physical, and economic infrastructure,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “This new website offers detailed information to the public and a user-friendly access point for stakeholders and partners seeking grants. We encourage eligible agencies and businesses to participate in this important opportunity.”
As part of the first tranche, City businesses, and institutions with a current tax-exempt status as a public charity under section 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), or (19) of the Internal Revenue Code, listed on the IRS Master File are invited to apply for funding.
