Massachusetts needs a Rural Rescue Plan

As billions of dollars flow from federal relief funding provided by the CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan, now is the time for the Commonwealth to develop a Rural Rescue Plan to create a new future for cash-strapped rural communities.

Our Rural Rescue Plan calls for:

  • Increased funding for the Chapter 90 program
  • Updated Chapter 90 funding formula
  • Creation of a public infrastructure agency
  • Continued investment in broadband internet

A 2021 study from the Auditor's Office shows why we need a Rural Rescue Plan.
