American Rescue Plan ARP Toolkit

The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities CCM  ARP Advisory Service Committee was convened to provide municipal CEOs with an ongoing panel of public and private sector experts designed to best help administer funding from the American Rescue Plan. Along with developing best practice and resources for members, they will work on a case-by-case basis with CCM member municipalities to analyze and recommend the use of ARP funds.

As municipal leaders begin to determine how best to use the funding provided by the American Rescue Plan (ARP), CCM’s ARP Advisory Committee has developed the attached toolkit to help guide thinking around these actions. American Rescue Plan Toolkit

Allocating these funds should provide an opportunity for local leaders to engage partners in their town and region to jumpstart a long and large economic recovery from the
Covid-19 pandemic and its effects. It also lets us address long-term issues that we haven’t had the ability to adequately deal with before, while balancing ever changing local needs with declining support from the state and federal governments.

This toolkit is intended to be a resource and supplement formal information provided by federal and state government agencies.
