Town Invites Community Members to Take ARPA Survey
The Town of Davidson invites residents and other community members to complete an online survey that will be available through May 7.
But first – What is ARPA?
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) was passed into law on March 11, 2021. This law includes the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, which provides $19.53 billion to support tens of thousands of non-entitlement units of local government. These local governments typically serve a population under 50,000 and include the Town of Davidson. Davidson is projected to receive $4.16 million by July 2022.
The town aims to provide the highest and best use of this one-time federally provided funding and offer a plan that will provide transformational and high value impact for the community. The town has established a series of Guiding Principles and seeks to offer support in one or more of the following areas: Affordable Living and Housing, Critical Infrastructure, Historic Storytelling/Restorative Justice, Mental Health Response, and Sustainability.
ARPA ONLINE SURVEY
The online survey has been designed to collect feedback from residents about how they would like to see the town allocate its ARPA funding. To complete the survey, please click on the link here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DavidsonARPA.
Please note that the town does not collect or store identifying information; a field requesting a respondent to input their email address is simply used to limit responses to one per person.
