ARPA Reminder from Treasury – April 2022 Reporting for NEUs

November 9, 2021

To: Municipal Clerks, Treasurers and Heads of Government

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue would like to share the information below provided by the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury).

Thank you for your partnership in Treasury's State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) program, authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). We appreciate the significant efforts you have made to meet the goals and objectives of the program.

As previously communicated, Treasury revised the deadline for submission of the first Project and Expenditure Report as follows:

  • For non-entitlement units of government (NEUs) and units of general local government within counties that are not units of general local government (Non-UGLG) the Project and Expenditure report will now be due on April 30, 2022 and will cover the period between award date and March 31, 2022. The report will be due annually by the end of April.

Reporting Guidance and User Guide

Today Treasury released updated Compliance and Reporting Guidance (Reporting Guidance) for the January 2022 reporting cycle. The updated Reporting Guidance addresses feedback and comments gathered by Treasury. As you know, NEUs are not required to report in January 2022. Prior to the April 2022 reporting cycle, Treasury will provide updated Reporting Guidance, a detailed user guide, and a webinar to assist recipients.

As a NEU or Non-UGLG, you should continue working with your State or territory to take action on your allocated distribution and provide the necessary contact information to set your account in Treasury's Portal. In the event you decide to decline and request the transfer of funds, you will need to submit the Treasury form provided by your State or territory. Treasury will provide further guidance to NEUs to access their accounts in future communications.

Treasury looks forward to working with you to ensure the continued success of the program.
