The Town of Carrboro is collecting information on how funds provided from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) can best address difficulties caused by COVID-19.
The Town is reaching out to hear your views for the best uses of ARPA funds. An initial survey is being provided this fall, and more outreach will be underway with our community in coming months.
The survey is available online or on paper.
