Del. State Auditor Hosts Town Halls On Rescue Plan Funding, Spending

What goes into tracking how Delaware spends funding from the American Rescue Plan Act?

State Auditor Kathy McGuiness is hosting a series of town hall discussions centered around her office’s online tracking resource for municipalities, counties, school districts and state agencies. The first session is tonight (Monday) between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center.

Delaware received about $1.25-billion in ARPA funds. Decisions on how to utilize the money are up to local entities, but the US Treasury has issued guidance.

The online tool known as Project Grey Fox, and more information about the town halls, can be found at auditor.delaware.gov

“Delawareans have been asking for greater accessibility, transparency and good governance in the First State,” McGuiness said. “These town halls will allow the public to better understand how their communities will be spending their ARPA funds.”
