Veterans Assistance Plan

(FALL RIVER, MA-DECEMBER 1, 2023)- The City of Fall River has put aside a portion of the funding received from the American Rescue Plan Act to be used for veterans in need of assistance.

Funds would be used to create a need-based program for veterans to help with payments for utility, food, rent, medical and transportation.

Veterans must present a copy of their DD-214. Funds will be distributed on a need-based assistance.

Twenty percent of the population in the city, which includes 800 veterans, are living below the poverty level. Chapter 115, a program that assists veterans with little income, only services one quarter of those veterans.

Veterans who wish to apply for assistance from this program can call the Fall River Veterans Services Office at 508-324-2432.

🎁Fall River Community Christmas Toy Drive🎁

(FALL RIVER, MA - NOVEMBER 14, 2023) - The City of Fall River, Mayor Paul Coogan, and local non-profit, ‘Law Enforcement Assisting Families’ (L.E.A.F.), are pleased to present the 2023 Fall River Community Christmas Toy Drive. This toy drive is generously sponsored by Scottie’s Pub and is an amazing opportunity to give back to families in need this holiday season.

All toys and monetary donations will stay within the Greater Fall River Area and will be dispersed to families in need by the Fall River Police Department. Donations will be accepted from November 10th through December 15th at various drop-off locations around Fall River. A continuous list of the updated drop-off locations will be available on the Fall River Community Christmas Drive page.

To further assist families in need, monetary donations are also being accepted on the Toy Drive's Gofundme Link.

“Making this toy drive community-wide is important to making sure that everyone in need this holiday season is taken care of. We want the city involved to make sure the children and families of Fall River have a Christmas they will never forget,” says Mayor Paul Coogan.

“It’s always great to see the people of Fall River come together and help those in need. It shows the true character of the city and how much the citizens truly care for one another,” says Director of L.E.A.F, Jonathan Ferreira.

To spread fun holiday cheer, a friendly competition will be held between local organizations who are hosting a box for the drive, and they will be competing to see who has the best decorated box!

For organizations who would like to participate in the drive or families who are in need of assistance this holiday season, please contact Jon Ferreira from the Fall River Police Department at 508-837-5477.

Launch of Online Licensing & Permitting Platform

(FALL RIVER, MA- NOVEMBER 2, 2023)- On November 1st, 2023, the City of Fall River launched an online licensing and permitting platform through the help of ARPA funding to simplify the way in which businesses and individuals obtain and fill out permits required for certain city operations.

This platform can be found on the homepage of the new city website (fallriverma.gov) under 'Permit Portal.' https://fallriverma.portal.opengov.com

The digital access to this platform allows for enhanced convenience to users since is it accessible via a mobile device or computer. It also will aid in reducing the use of paper and increase overall efficiency in city departments.

To date, permits are available on this portal for two city departments: The City of Fall River’s Building Department and the City of Fall River’s Engineering & Planning Department. In the near future, other city departments will be added to the platform and their permits will also be available online.

The City of Fall River’s Information Technology Department worked closely with OpenGov, a cloud government software company that specializes in helping municipalities create digital convenience for its residents to create this online permit platform. This partnership will continue as updates are continuously made to the portal to ensure efficiency.

There are several city employees who played a key role in helping with the set-up of the platform:

Tyler Antaya- IT Department
George Valton- IT Department
Chris Parayno- Planning Department
Terry Sullivan Jr. – Engineering Department
Glenn Hathaway- Building Department
Brenda Beaudry- Building Department
Ian Schachne- City Collector

CITY CHRISTMAS TREE
(FALL RIVER, MA- OCTOBER 12, 2023) - Although it is only mid-October, the holiday season is fast approaching, and the City of Fall River is searching for that special property owner who may be willing to donate a large tree for the 2023 Holiday Season. The City is looking for a donation of a spruce, fir, or pine tree that is anywhere between 20 to 40 feet tall to be displayed outside of Government Center for the Holiday Season.

In the past, the tree has been donated by residents. The tree is the most important addition to the holiday decorations around Fall River as it helps spread joy and brings the community together for the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration.

If you have a large spruce, fir, or pine tree that you are willing to donate to stand tall outside of Fall River Government Center for the holiday season, please contact the Fall River Department of Community Maintenance at 508-324-2762. The Fall River Department of Community Maintenance provides for the removal and transportation of the tree to Government Center.
