In late March, Richland Source published an editorial that urged government officials to "slow way down" when it came to American Rescue Plan funding. It asked for deep, thoughtful conversations about how these funds might be invested in the communities they serve.

The editorial also urged government officials to think outside themselves and seek expert advice and counsel.

We decided to offer some help in that department.

The Richland County Foundation, the Richland Area Chamber & Economic Development, and Richland Source hosted a webinar on May 25th to chat with Alison Goebel from the Greater Ohio Policy Center about the best use of ARP funds.

Tune in to listen to a short presentation from the GOPC, along with questions and answers from our audience. To read the full transcription of questions in the chat, click here: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/americanrescueplan
