MN Communities get extra time to get in ARP proposals for projects like broadband

Minneapolis Star Tribune reports

Minnesota on Monday gave local governments a little more time to claim federal COVID-19 relief money to which they’re already entitled.

Eligible cities and townships now have through Oct. 11 to apply for American Rescue Plan aid to help their communities respond to the pandemic, Minnesota Management and Budget announced. The deadline had been Monday.

“These ARP funds are a huge opportunity for local governments to address inequities and negative economic impacts in their communities and improve access to water and broadband infrastructure,” MMB Commissioner Jim Schowalter said in a statement.
