American Rescue Plan Act

The American Rescue PlanThe American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 was signed into law by President Joseph Biden on March 11, 2021, in efforts to provide support to individuals, families and businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Town of Bloomfield directly received $6.2 million in ARPA funding through the federal government's State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. These funds are intended to allow flexibility for jurisdictions to meet local needs and fund local solutions to support families, small businesses, impacted industries, essential workers and the communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Funds must be encumbered by December 31, 2024 and spent by December 31, 2026.

Mayor Danielle Wong appointed members to this Ad-Hoc Committee to perform the following duties.

The ARPA Community Outreach Taskforce Shall:

  • Provide recommendations to the Town Council on the expenditure of approximately $1.6 million ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act of 2021) funding
  • Solicit input from Town departments, boards, committees, and commissions
  • Develop an evaluation tool to rank proposals for funding, taking into account the benefit of the requested improvement to Town operations and/or the community as a whole
  • Develop a report to present to the Bloomfield Town Council that will include a list of all proposals submitted for consideration, in addition to those recommended for funding
