MAYOR ROBERT SULLIVAN DISTRIBUTES FIRST ROUND OF ARPA GRANT AWARDS
BROCKTON, MA – The City of Brockton will distribute the first-round of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Grant Program awards to 41 deserving nonprofit and faith-based organiz
ations. Mayor Robert Sullivan made the announcement.
Mayor Sullivan launched this ARPA grant program on December 10th, 2021, providing local nonprofit and faith-based organizations with funds to assist in recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the program, the City has committed $2,000,000. The organizations will receive the grant award at a ceremony at City Hall (Civil War Art Hallway) on April 28th at 1:30 pm. All media are invited to attend. “
The local non-profit agencies and faith-based organizations are the heart of our City, providing services and support to all of our residents, especially the most vulnerable members of our society,” said Mayor Robert Sullivan. “The COVID-19 pandemic greatly and negatively impacted these organizations and the services they provide. These funds being disbursed through our ARPA grant program will assist these agencies, helping them recover from the pandemic and continue providing essential services in Brockton.”
"With the approval of these ARPA projects, the city has taken a historic step toward unprecedented investment in our city,” said CFO Troy Clarkson. “I've been in public life for thirty years, and the collaboration on this important set of initiatives is the best I've seen to date. The city is on a path of renovation and revitalization that will make a difference for generations to come."
“Mayor Sullivan’s collaborative approach with the City Council is a refreshing example of teamwork that seems lost in today's politics,” said ARPA Project Manager Dan Pallotta.
“Assisting these nonprofit and faith-based organizations with these once-in-a-lifetime funds is the first of many acts the Mayor has planned to greatly benefit residents of the City.”
To receive future installments, each recipient must provide a detailed quarterly expenditure report, current objectives/goals, project activities, and quarterly accomplishments.
The organizations will receive the grant award at a ceremony at City Hall (Civil War Art Hallway) on April 28th at 1:30 pm. All media are invited to attend.
