Report Deadline

All local governments that received State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), must submit reports to the U.S. Treasury by April 30, 2024. For many local governments, this ARPA reporting period will cover activity from April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024. Here are a few tips and reminders to consider as you prepare to submit this report:

  • Local governments must file a report even if they did not expend ARPA funds during the reporting period or have no further expenditures to report.
  • All ARPA funding must be obligated by December 31, 2024 and fully expended by December 31, 2026. 
  • Ensure you have an active registration by logging in to your account. If your registration needs updating, begin the process as early as possible as this update can take several weeks to complete. 
  • If you have experienced staff turnover, make sure you have retained your local government’s U.S. Treasury portal login credentials and take a moment to log into the portal. Retain a hard copy of the login credentials in your records.
  • Retain hard copies of your previously submitted ARPA reports for your records.
  • Subrecipients are not subject to the December 31, 2024 obligation deadline. The obligation deadline applies to the recipient of SLFRF funds, and a cost is considered to have been incurred once a recipient enters into a subaward or contract that obligates the recipient to cover that cost.
  • After the obligation deadline, recipients are permitted to replace a contract or subaward that was entered into prior to December 31, 2024 under the following circumstances:
    • 1. The recipient terminates the contract or subaward because of the contractor or subrecipient’s default, the contractor or subrecipient goes out of business, or the recipient determines that the contractor or subrecipient will not be able to perform under the contract or carry out the subaward.
    • 2. The recipient and contractor or subrecipient mutually agree to terminate the contract or subaward for convenience.
    • 3. The recipient terminates the contract or subaward for convenience if the contract or subaward was not properly awarded (for example, if the contractor was not eligible to receive the contract), there is clear evidence that the contract or subaward was improper, the recipient documents the determination that it was not properly awarded, and the original contract or subaward was entered into by the recipient in good faith.
