ARPA REPORTING ALERT!!!
 

Key ARPA reporting deadline extended

https://kaco.org/articles/key-arpa-reporting-deadline-extended/

Due to comments and feedback gathered during the Interim Report and Recovery Plan Performance Report process, Treasury is revising the deadline for the submission of the first Project and Expenditure Report for counties that have received American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.

Project and Expenditure Reports will now be due on January 31, 2022 and will cover the period between a county's award date and December 31, 2021. The original due date for the report was October 31, 2021.

All counties that have received ARPA funds must submit a Project and Expenditure Report. This report is in addition to the Interim Report, which was due Aug. 31, 2021 or 60 days after receiving funds if funds were received after July 15. 

Additional instructions will be provided at a later date, including updates to existing guidance as well as a user guide to assist recipients to gather and submit the information through Treasury’s Portal. 

Visit the Treasury’s website at 
www.Treasury.gov/SLFRPReporting for the latest information.
