NASHUA, N.H. – Following in Manchester’s footsteps, Nashua is seeking public feedback on how it will spend its federal funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act.

Nashua will receive approximately $16.1 million, one of five municipalities in New Hampshire to receive ARP funds directly from the federal government, with the others being Manchester ($43.2 million); Portsmouth ($12.8 million); Dover ($7.5 million); and Rochester ($6.4 million).

The City of Nashua’s Office of Economic Development is hosting virtual and in-person community forums where officials will present a draft framework plan for the funds and then request feedback.

The virtual sessions will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 21 and Thursday, Sept. 23 from 7-8 p.m. The in-person session will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 5 p.m.

For more information on how to join the virtual sessions or about the in-person session, contact Amy DeRoche at 603-594-3661 or e-mail derochea@nashuanh.gov
