PURCELLVILLE, Va. June 25, 2021 — The Town of Purcellville is seeking community input via a survey on how to spend the $10.5 million awarded to the town through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 was signed into law by the President on March 11, 2021. The bill provides $1.9 trillion to address the continued impacts of COVID-19 on the economy, public health, individuals, businesses, and state and local governments. The town expects to receive the first installment of $5.2 million from the state within the next few weeks, and the second installment in the same amount following no earlier than May 2022.
In order to best allocate the town’s ARPA funds, the Town Council has created a survey to receive community feedback. The survey will remain open through Thursday, July 8, 2021, and can be found on the town’s website through the Coronavirus Information link located at the top of the webpage in the Alert Center.
