Take Action to Support ARPA Funds in the Region

The SMP is an alliance of citizens, businesses, non‐profits, economic development organizations, academic institutions, and local, county, state, and federal government agencies and officials working together on the vision of a future landscape of conserved resources and vibrant communities sharing a common sense of place and collaborating on well-planned growth and sustainable economic development in Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties.

We collaborated with you (our partners) to request that each of our region’s counties allocate American Rescue Plan funds for conservation and recreation. We have drafted a letter showing our support and were so pleased to have 40 partners sign-on from all across our region! This letter will now be sent to the four counties. 

Click here to read the support letter.

We want your input! Tell us how we can best serve Cumberland County with our $46.7 million in remaining American Rescue Plan funds!
