Rec, welfare mulled for stimulus funds

WOODSVILLE—Haverhill Selectboard members discussed how to spend its expected allocation of funds under the federal American Rescue Plan Act during their meeting on July 6.
As part of the $1.9 trillion ARPA, $130 billion will be sent to municipalities and counties across the country. In New Hampshire, $112 million will be spread across the state’s municipalities excluding its five cities if they opt in by a deadline in the coming weeks.
Haverhill Town Manager Brigitte Codling said last week the town alone has identified some $680,600 in eligible expenses. In addition, town officials said they solicited input from the town’s precincts. Woodsville shared a list of projects totaling $390,000 while Mountain Lakes had one around $594,000.
