The U.S. Department of the Treasury is extending the deadline for counties to submit the first round of Project and Expenditure reports for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
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 funding from the SLFRF, as authorized under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), must meet compliance and reporting responsibilities. Last week, the U.S. Department of the Treasury extended the first deadline for counties to submit Project and Expenditure Reports, which were initially due October 31, 2021.
Project and Expenditure Reports are now due January 31, 2022, covering the period between the award date and December 31, 2021.
In the weeks ahead, Treasury will release more information on submitting Project and Expenditure Reports.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) is in close communication with Treasury officials about specific reporting requirements. View NACo’s updated FAQ document or submit a question to their experts.
