  • Rockland Rebound puts $30K in your hands to improve your city

    Rockland Rebound is a new effort that asks the citizens of Rockland to propose and vote on how to spend $30,000 of ARPA funds to benefit our community.

    The federal government has allocated the city of Rockland over $700,000 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, which the City Council has used to bolster our fire department, storm water system, and public infrastructure.

    Now it’s your turn to decide how Rockland spends its money.

    Who can participate?

    • Any Rockland resident aged 12 or older can submit a proposal. Residents under 18 need an adult cosponsor on their proposals.
    • Any group or organization located in Rockland can submit an proposal.
    • Any Rockland resident aged 12 or older can vote on the proposals.

    What kinds of proposals will be considered?

    ARPA funds are aimed specifically at COVID-19 relief — full guidelines here.

    Rockland Rebound is looking for proposals in these categories:

    • Projects to benefit senior citizens
    • Projects to benefit Rockland youth
    • Projects to improve public health
    • To benefit front-line workers or those most impacted by the pandemic

    How will the money be distributed?

    • One award for up to $10,000
    • Four awards for up to $5,000

    When are proposals due, and when do we vote?

    Proposals will be accepted from to July 15-August 15
    Candidates will be announced by August 31
    Voting will take place Sept 15-22
    Award winners will be announced on Oct. 3. 2022 at the Rockland City Council Meeting

    You can also pick up a paper submission form at the Rockland Public Library or City Clerk’s office at Rockland City Hall and submit your proposal to the City Clerk in person.
