American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Training

90-minute training

Through the American Rescue Plan Act ARPA, the federal government dispersed millions of dollars to communities throughout Massachusetts to offset the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with its mandate to prevent and detect waste, fraud and abuse of public resources, the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG), through its Pandemic Funding Oversight Unit, is offering two free webinars on current rules and best practices for use of Fiscal Recovery Funds under ARPA.
