Huge Opportunity to Invest in a Green Recovery
The Massachusetts Legislature is nearing a decision on how to spend $4.9B in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. Eight statewide environmental NGOs, including MLTC, have been advocating for investing a portion of those funds in a more environmentally resilient Commonwealth. Now is the time to contact your State Senator and Representative and urge them to support significant ARPA funding for land acquisition and restoration, climate resiliency, and outdoor recreation. For background and details you could cite, see our joint letter here, a recent Op-Ed in the Boston Herald from TNC’s Massachusetts State Director Deb Markowitz here, and a Boston Globe editorial here.
