Friday, June 18, 2021 Deadline Approaching – E-file Today for Federal Funding!
Request funding now so your municipality has the opportunity to provide relief and invest in your community!
This is a reminder from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to request the American Rescue Plan Act – Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (LFRF) for your municipality by e-filing Form SL-330 through My DOR Government Account.
You do not have to determine how you will spend the funds to file! Every Wisconsin municipality was allocated funds. You have up to three years to obligate the ARPA funds, and we will help communities with options after you receive the money!
Review a Non-Exclusive List of Eligible Uses: ARPA – Local Fiscal Recovery Funds.
DOR holding Open Forum on ARPA – Local Fiscal Recovery Funds
If your municipality still needs to file and has questions, join us at our open forum sessions.

DOR has received several questions regarding the appropriate value to report in Section B, Line 1 on Form SL-330: Coronavirus Local Recovery Funds Request.
Based on the U.S. Treasury Department's frequently asked questions – the most recent budget is a municipality's most recent annual total operating budget, including its general fund and other funds, as of January 27, 2020. If a fund is within your operating budget, it should be included. This may include general fund, debt service, capital project fund, special revenue funds, enterprise funds, etc.
We will continue to send information to help assist local governments through this process.
