October 1, 2021 - All In for Milford (AIFM) has focused on making the administration and prioritization of the American Rescue Plan in Milford a priority. In early August 2021, AIFM began engaging municipal, state and federal political leaders to advocate for a transparent process that includes educational opportunities and public forums for Milford residents to actively inform and impact the administration of Milford’s ARPA allocation of $26,295,776.
Since then, AIFM has motivated public participation opportunities provided by the City of Milford including the 7-day proposal submission period of August 10th through August 17th. AIFM assisted Milford households, non-profits and faith leaders in developing submissions. Over 100 proposals were submitted to the City of Milford for consideration.
We continue to engage the City in meaningful conversations and present ongoing opportunities to incorporate the voices of Milford into this allocation process.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to respond to unprecedented needs. We must continue to advocate for the Milford community, as the COVID-19 pandemic lingers, households are now faced with economic fallout and compounding social-emotional needs.
We encourage you to join the conversation! To receive ongoing ARPA news and information, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

It is also important to note that local governments cannot use funds for deposit into any pension fund or rainy-day fund. In addition, the funds cannot be used for directly or indirectly offsetting a tax cut.
