Branches Receives $10,000 in ARPA funding

HUNTINGTON – District 9 Huntington City Councilwoman Ally Layman presented a check Friday, Oct. 13, for $10,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to Branches Domestic Violence Shelter.

The funding will be used to help Branches continue its mission of helping people

who are victims of domestic violence.

“I’m grateful to have been given the opportunity to distribute ARPA funds to Branches Domestic Violence Shelter,” Layman said. “Domestic violence touches every community. It takes a number of forms, including physical, verbal, emotional and economic, just to name a few. Everyone deserves relationships free from domestic violence. Together, we can transform our community to build a place where all people live free from violence.”

“We appreciate Councilwoman Ally Layman and the City of Huntington so much for this generous donation,” said Amanda Weiss-McComas, executive director of Branches. “This grant will help advocates be equipped to serve domestic violence victims in the Huntington area. We are thankful for a community that supports our life-saving mission.”

The City of Huntington received $40,628,967 in ARPA funds in 2021. The funding is meant to help communities across the country recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each of Huntington City Council’s 11 representatives was designated with $100,000 in ARPA funds to distribute to community projects that qualify under the guidelines of the American Rescue Plan Act.
