New Guidance on expending Settlement Funds from Division of Local Services

Information from the Attorney General’s Office


All municipalities are encouraged to report annually on their expenditures, and these reports will be available to the public on a map.  ONLY municipalities receiving more than $35,000 in a year are required to submit reports. Note that there are organizations that will contact you to ask for a report that may not seem voluntary, but is. These are groups interested in how the funds are being spent, they are not monitoring on behalf of an official entity.   MA reporting form for those who receive $35K or more each year.
