In January of 2022, the City of McComb learned that it would receive $3,199,183 in American Rescue Plan Funding to be used on “shovel ready” infrastructure projects. Local arts organizations formed a coalition to ask the City for a small percentage of those funds to help repair the civic infrastructure provided by the organizations. Below is the appeal letter send to the City. We are awaiting an invitation from the Mayor and Board of Selectmen to present the proposal to them at a work session. If you’d like to have your name added to the letter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
