ARLINGTON, MA – State Sen. Cindy Friedman, State Rep. Sean Garballey and State Rep. Dave Rogers are proud to announce funding for a myriad of projects in and around the Town of Arlington in the Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) state budget. The final budget features substantial investments in key areas related to public education, local aid, transportation, health and human services, housing and assistance for low income families.
METCO will use its funding to provide late afternoon and evening transportation for students in Arlington and Lexington. “Many students in Arlington benefit from the METCO program,” Friedman said in a statement. ‘Expanding access to late afternoon and evening transportation will ensure that METCO students have the opportunity to fully participate in after school athletics and extra-curricular programs at Arlington and Lexington high schools.”
