Newtown Friends Home & Village Board Chairman Terry Christiansen Inquires About Access to ARP Funds

At the August 11, 2021, Newtown Township Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Newtown Friends Home & Village Board Chairman Terry Christiansen asked if there is a process in place whereby non-profit groups such as his can apply for a share of the $1,024,920.93 American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds that the township has received.

The intent of ARP is to allocate money for several initiatives, including funds for local municipalities to bolster the economy and support not-for-profits in the local community that had been severely impacted during the COVID pandemic. Mr. Christiansen noted that the cost of COVID mitigation efforts incurred by the Friends Village was significant.

johnmacknewtown's insight:

To answer his question, to date (August 13, 2021), there is no such procedure yet in place for non-profits to request a share of ARP funds that Newtown Township has in the bank.
