Yesterday afternoon, the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced changes to the reporting deadlines for states, territories, Metropolitan Cities and non-entitlement units of government for the American Rescue Plan Act’s Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.

Metropolitan Cities (generally those with populations above 50,000) now have until Jan. 31, 2022 — instead of Oct. 31, 2021 — to report project and expenditure data, covering the period between award date and Dec. 31, 2021.

Non-entitlement units of government now need to file their first report by April 30, 2022, instead of Oct. 31, 2021, covering the period between award date and March 31, 2022.

The announcement came a day after the MMA hosted a webinar with officials from the Executive Office for Administration and Finance explaining the ARPA reporting requirements for non-entitlement units of government.

In August, the MMA hosted a similar webinar for Metropolitan Cities.

Municipalities are subject to various reporting requirements associated with the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. The MMA website federal funds area features a comprehensive collection of guidance, documents and webinars related to the ARPA.
