Medford Hires Federal Funds Manager to Help Guide ARPA Strategy

City Holding ARPA Community Meeting on March 9 at 6pm at City Hall and on Zoom

(MEDFORD)—Thanks to the American Rescue Plan (ARPA), over the next few years Medford will be investing nearly $50 million dollars into the community to restore and revitalize critical systems, facilities and institutions that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help navigate this process, the City has hired Molly Kivi to serve as Federal Funds Manager. She is tasked with incorporating the input and priorities of the community and setting a strategy with the administration for how these funds can be implemented.

The City is holding a community meeting on Wednesday, March 9 at 6 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers and via zoom where members of the public can learn more about ARPA funds and ask Molly questions. The City will also be putting out a survey that will be seeking input from the community about how this money should be spent.

You can contact Molly at, or visit the City’s ARPA page at for more info.
