American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Office Hours
Learn How States are Using ARPA Funding
To facilitate sharing among legislators and legislative staff, NCSL is hosting a series of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Office Hours—a virtual meeting to speak with our experts—on ARPA-related topics. Please feel free to hop on with your questions, and stay for as little or as long as you like. You can also send us your questions in advance, and we'll be sure to find the answer or find an expert who knows the answer.
These drop-in calls will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month, from February through May 2022, and are open to state legislators and/or legislative staff only.
