Take part in the City of Lynn ARPA Community Survey!

The funding afforded to the City of Lynn through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in our community. As a result, it is imperative that those in the community have the opportunity to make their voices heard on potential uses of funding.

You are invited to complete a survey that will help the city determine where funding is most needed. Links to the online survey below in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and Khmer.
