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 mkivi@medford-ma.gov, or visit the City’s ARPA page at medfordma.org/arpa for more info.
