BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Congressman Peter Welch this week has been briefing many local government leaders on the funding that will soon be available to them under the COVID relief package signed by the president last week.

The state of Vermont is scheduled to receive $1.3 billion in funds from the American Rescue Plan. And unlike the last stimulus bill, the state and local governments will have the flexibility over the next three years to spend the millions.

Céline McArthur spoke with Welch about the message he’s been delivering to local officials.
