Reading, MA — The Reading Council on Aging (COA) launches an outreach campaign this week to provide insight on the upcoming feasibility study exploring how to best serve Reading’s growing 60+ population. The study, projected to launch later this year, uses American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds secured by the Select Board.
