On Monday, January 31st, the Canonsburg Borough Council held a public workshop to discuss the use of over $900,000 in ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds. Community members were encouraged to bring their ideas for the use of the funds to the table. Due to Covid risk, we decided not to attend. As you can see in this linked document, a number of options were discussed, though no decisions have been made. There will be other meetings and workshops around this topic in the future; the next one will be held Monday, February 28th at 6:30 pm.

If you have questions regarding the ARPA funds or how to get involved in the decision-making process, please reach out to CCJ’s Field Program Coordinator Paul Fedore at paul@centerforcoalfieldjustice.org call 724-229-3550 Ext. 8.
