US Treasury to host ARPA briefing for Ohio local elected officials
On Wednesday, January 26, at 2:15 PM, officials from the US Department of the Treasury will hold a virtual session for Ohio local elected officials regarding the ARPA final rule. Since this session will be open to only Ohio officials, it will be valuable to hear what other communities across the state are planning to utilize their funds for and benefit from questions posed by different communities.
The registration link is included below. During registration, you will have an opportunity to submit questions ahead of time. You will also be able to ask questions during the session.
We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about the ARPA rules directly from the federal department administering the program and hear from other communities across the state.
