During a one-hour webinar this morning hosted by the MMA, officials from the Executive Office for Administration and Finance explained the reporting requirements for non-entitlement units of government under the American Rescue Plan Act.
Municipalities are subject to various reporting requirements associated with the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund that was authorized by the ARPA. Non-entitlement communities — generally those with populations below 50,000 — are required to file a Project and Expenditure Report by April 30, 2022. [Note: The day after the webinar, the U.S. Department of the Treasury postponed the deadline, originally set for Oct. 31, 2021, to next April 30, covering the period between award date and March 31, 2022.]
Kate Mayer, assistant director for federal funds at the Executive Office for Administration and Finance, gave a detailed explanation of the Treasury’s unique reporting requirements for non-entitlement communities.
Answering numerous questions from participants were Mayer, Brendan Sweeney, assistant director for federal funds at the Executive Office for Administration and Finance, and Sean Cronin, senior deputy commissioner at the Division of Local Services.
A similar webinar was hosted in August for Metropolitan Cities (generally those with populations above 50,000).
A wide range of ARPA guidance documents are available on mma.org.
