NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council (UDC) will host a public presentation on “Conservation Initiatives and Funding Gaps: How the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) May Help” on Tuesday, November 16, at 7 p.m. in the UDC office, 211 Bridge St., Narrowsburg, NY.
Upper Delaware River valley county, town, and township officials could benefit from the information that Delaware Highlands Conservancy (DHC) Land Protection Coordinator Kaylan Hubbard and Steven Schwartz, member of DHC’s Land Protection Committee, will share.
The ARPA specifically targets investments in public health, tourism, economic recovery, and water and stormwater infrastructure, and provides latitude for counties and municipalities to determine the types of projects for these capital investments.
Parks, trails, and open space projects can fit into these criteria.
The talk will kick off the monthly meeting of the UDC’s Water Use/Resource Management Committee (WU/RM). That agenda will include new and old business, updates on ongoing projects, reports of recent meetings, and notices of upcoming events.
All UDC committee meetings are open to the public. Zoom or call-in options will be offered. For further information, call the UDC office at (845) 252-3022 or visit www.upperdelawarecouncil.org.
