As Submission Deadline Looms, Treasury Rolls Out Video Walkthrough of ARPA Reporting Portal

The U.S. Department of the Treasury released a step-by-step video walkthrough of the Treasury Portal for the Interim Report and the Recovery Plan Performance Report, which counties must submit by August 31, 2021.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) is hosting the full video on its website, as well as individual clips:

The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) Program provides a substantial infusion of resources to communities working to turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.

Counties that receive SLFRF must meet compliance and reporting responsibilitiesOn August 31, both the Interim Report and the Recovery Plan Performance Report are due to the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

All counties must submit an Interim Report. However, counties that did not receive Recovery Funds until after July 15, 2021, may submit an Interim Report within 60 days of receiving funds.

Additionally, counties with greater than 250,000 residents must submit the Recovery Plan Performance Report, which provides information on a recipient’s projects and plans for achieving programmatic outcomes in an effective, equitable manner.

Treasury released a user guide, which includes step-by-step guidance for submitting the required reports using Treasury’s Portal. Counties can submit reports through Treasury’s Submission Portal.

According to NACo:
