Welcome to the Town of Ellington

American Rescue Plan Act

At the November 9, 2021 Regular Meeting of the Board of Selectmen, the members unanimously approved the creation of an ARP Funds Task Force. Read the full Press Release here.

The American Rescue Plan is delivering direct relief to the American people, rescuing the American economy, and starting to beat the virus. For a full overview of what’s in the plan, click here. The Federal Government has an entire resource site dedicated to the ARP.

The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, which Ellington belongs to, also has many resources that are updated regularly and that news and information can be found here.  

CCM has also provided an American Rescue Plan Toolkit, which was designed to help guide municipal leaders in determining how best to use the funding provided. 

The Town Ordinance regarding the American Rescue Plan Act Special Revenue Fund can be found here.

Interested residents, taxpayers and business owners of Ellington can now submit ideas for the funds through our ARPA Solicitation Form; there is an online form option as well as a downloadable PDF
