FREDA Webinar: Preparing for American Rescue Plan Act Funds: Lessons Learned from the CARES Act
May 12 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
This complimentary webinar is being hosted by the Florida Rural Economic Development Association (FREDA) and is intended to provide timely information on the recently passed and signed $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021. While ARP funding is anticipated to be similar to the CARES Act, there are some anticipated differences and the recent experiences—and lessons learned—from the CARES Act are vital. In addition, Florida’s Economic Development Representative from the US Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) will be providing an update on prospective funding expected to be made available from ARP through EDA. Please join us for this timely and informative webinar as CARES Act experienced consultants and professionals provide the latest on ARP funding, and share what local governments can and should be doing NOW to prepare for ARP!
