ARPA 101 Training Sessions



ARPA 101 Training Sessions 

January 25 & 27, 2022

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) makes unprecedented funding available to combat the devastating health and economic impacts of COVID-19, including more than $5 billion in Local Fiscal Recovery Fund allocations for Appalachian counties. How can local governments, and the local development districts (LDDs) that support them, make the most impactful use of this funding? 

Welcome remarks by:

Gayle Manchin

Federal Co-Chair

Appalachian Regional Commission. 

Adam Ortiz

Regional Administrator Mid-Atlantic Region 3

Environmental Protection Agency

With support from the Appalachian Regional Commission and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness is partnering with the National Association of Counties and EntreWorks Consulting on a series of training sessions in 2022 to share key requirements, best practices for long-term economic transformation, and successful case studies related to ARPA’s Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.   

The first two training sessions are now scheduled, and registration is open.
