ARPA Work Groups

ARPA Work Groups 

TJCOG is hosting topic specific working groups related to federal, state, and local ARPA funding. These working groups will also include best practices and discussion that can be relevant even if your community is only using revenue replacement for your local ARPA funds. On the schedule, we have indicated what meetings will only be beneficial to communities with more than $10M in ARPA funds.

Questions and RSVPs for the Housing Work Group can be directed to Anna Blanchard at ablanchard@tjcog.org. Questions and RSVPs for all other work groups can be directed to Alana Keegan at akeegan@tjcog.org or Tara Nattress at tnattress@tjcog.org.
