ARPA Information from the Office of the Inspector General
Under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), Massachusetts state, county, tribal and local entities are receiving federal aid to respond to the public health and economic impacts of the public health emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
ARPA created or extended a variety of different grant programs for different purposes. Programs are administered by a variety of public jurisdictions, and use different thresholds to determine eligibility. If you have a question related to your application for ARPA-related aid, please contact the agency to which you sent your application. If you do not have information about a particular program and have questions about your eligibility for ARPA-related aid, please contact your elected officials, including but not limited to municipal leadership, state legislators or the Governor’s office.
