The American Rescue Plan is funding three COVID-related programs in Haverford Township, writes Pete Bannan for the Daily Times.
The first provides a $950 stipend to Haverford’s volunteer firefighters who served during the COVID-19 pandemic, from March 13, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021.
Radnor commissioners approved a similar program awarding $1,000 to each of its volunteers.

Phase one of the program awards 45 grants of $2,500 each, totaling $112.500 to township businesses.
