Securing Funding for our StudentsFebruary 9, 2023
Today, we secured funding to invest in Connecticut's students.
By utilizing $60 million of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, we are able to ensure every child in Connecticut can access free school lunches for the remainder of the school year. Equitable access to proper nutrition in school is necessary to support a child's ability to learn and thrive.
I would also like to highlight more than $20 million in special education funding that has been allocated to schools across the state, including $15,903 for Mansfield.
As always, if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance, please feel free to email me directly if I can be of assistance.
