ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Monroe County Executive Adam Bello announced the county is temporarily suspending an ARPA program.

Over 40 local organizations were announced to be the recipients of the $144 million American Rescue Plan Act given to Monroe County.

According to Legislator Rachel Barnhart, the organization getting suspended is the Community Resource Collaborative, an organization aimed at uplifting younger people who have been the victims of violence.

The organization was announced as a recipient of ARPA funding in September 2022, with $7.1 million going towards the creation of services and neighborhood outreach.

In a statement posted to X, Barnhart says this development raises questions about “the oversight of an organization that appears to function as nearly a pass-through for ARPA dollars.”
