The Baker-Polito administration has launched a website to provide information on the more than 600 earmarks for local projects included in a $3.7 billion spending package that was signed into law on Nov. 10.
The website lists every project title, amount, administering agency, and important agency contact information for each earmark. The site also provides clear instructions for earmark recipients to use when starting the process of accessing the funds.
Chapter 268 of the Acts of 2022 is a combination of an economic development bill and a fiscal 2022 supplemental budget. It is intended to promote economic development, strengthen health and human services, advance clean energy, expand affordable housing, and invest in local communities, businesses and workers. The law allows for spending from the state’s General Fund, as well as the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund (part of the American Rescue Plan Act).
The earmarks website is run by the Federal Funds Office in the Executive Office for Administration and Finance.
