Regionalism and the Recovery Act | 2021 Indiana University Rural Conference
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides a unique opportunity for governments, regional organizations, and nonprofits to infuse new resources into their priority initiatives. But the plan includes many programs across many different federal agencies, so determining how best to engage with ARP programs can be intimidating. This interactive session will break down approaches for pursuing and investing ARP funds and discuss how new state and federal programs could advance regional initiatives.
