U.S. Treasury Extends ARPA Reporting Deadline

The U.S. Department of Treasury has extended the reporting deadline for the Project & Expenditures Report for all recipients of the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF). According to NYGFOA and several other local government legislative advocacy groups across the country, the U.S. Department of Treasury sent an email out on Thursday, September 30, 2021 notifying states of the deadline change. Here is a link to the official addendum. According to the email correspondence, the deadline extension comes as a result of the feedback and comments gathered from recipients during that process. Please note:

  • States, Metropolitan Cities, Counties, Territories, and Tribal Governments will now report on January 31, 2022, instead of October 31, 2021 and will cover the period between award date and December 31, 2021.
  • The first reporting deadline for Non-Entitlement Units (NEUs) will be April 30, 2022, instead of October 31, 2021 and will cover the period between award date and March 31, 2022.

States have been sent a draft letter regarding the change by the Treasury which can be used to notify their NEUs. As an NEU you should continue working with your state or territory to take action on your allocated distribution and provide the necessary contact information to set up your account in Treasury’s Portal. In the event you decide to decline and request the transfer of funds, you will need to submit the Treasury form provided by your state or territory. Further 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. Please visit Treasury’s website at www.Treasury.gov/SLFRPReporting for the latest information. As always, if you have specific questions and would like to consult with one of our specialized RBT Government team members, contact us today.
