The U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced that it will keep its portal open past the April 30 deadline for communities that have contacted Treasury about a technical issue regarding their Project and Expenditure Reports submission and do not receive a response by April 30.

The Treasury Department is the federal agency administering the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds under the American Rescue Plan Act.

“The Treasury Portal will remain open for your submissions after the deadline to accommodate those who are experiencing technical issues,” the department announced yesterday.

Local officials are advised to send an email to if they are having a technical issue.

Municipal recipients of ARPA’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds are divided into two categories: metro cities, which are typically municipalities with a population greater than 50,000, and non-entitlement units of government, which have populations below 50,000. Both types must submit a Project and Expenditure Report to the Treasury by April 30.
