​June 3, 2021

To: Municipal and County Clerks, Treasurers and Heads of Government


FEDERAL FUNDING IS AVAILABLE – PREPARE TO FILE NEXT WEEK

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) is providing an estimate of the allocations non-entitlement units of government (NEUs) are eligible to receive under the American Rescue Plan Act – Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (LFRF) and a description of the next steps local governments should follow to request funding. NEUs are typically municipalities with a population under 50,000. The distribution of LFRF funds to NEUs will be handled by DOR.

Counties and metropolitan cities will receive their allocations directly from the U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury). Those units of government can find information about requesting their funds by visiting the Treasury website.
