Friendly reminders regarding American Rescue Plan Act – State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (ARPA-SLFRF)

Now that the U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury) released the Final Rule, local governments are able to decide on the use for their ARPA funds. While the Final Rule offers much greater flexibility for using funds with the new $10 million threshold for revenue loss, we would like to offer a few reminders for consideration before making any final decisions.


The American Rescue Plan offers a rare opportunity to make strategic long-term investments in our communities. We encourage all local governments to use the funds wisely.
