American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) Grants

The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds program of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP/CSLFRF) granted funding to all NC counties and municipalities to address pandemic-related and other essential local government operational and capital needs. There are five main authorized expenditure categories: (1) responding to the pandemic and its negative economic impacts; (2) revenue replacement; (3) premium pay for eligible employees providing essential services during the pandemic; (4) necessary water, wastewater, stormwater, and broadband infrastructure; and (5) targeted projects related to disaster response and mitigation, Title I CDBG, and surface transportation. The grant continues to afford many local governments opportunities to make transformational investments in their communities. But it comes with many compliance and reporting requirements. Here you will find resources on eligible expenditures, budgeting, compliance, and reporting.
