American Rescue Plan Report Due by April 30

In 2022, the U.S. Department of the Treasury began requiring local governments receiving American Rescue Plan's Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to submit a Project and Expenditure Report. The annual deadline for all cities and towns to submit this report is April 30.

The Department of the Treasury has a Self-Services Resource to assist recipients with questions about reporting, technical issues, eligible uses of funds and other items. This resource can be found on the U.S Department of Treasury website

All reporting must be done in the Department of the Treasury's reporting portal, which will open about 30 days before the reporting deadline.  Access to the portal is only available to those who were assigned the role of Account Administrator, Point of Contact for Reporting or Authorized Representative for Reporting when submitting the last report.  If either of these roles have changed, staff should update these roles within the portal. Instructions on doing this can be found online.

By law, all ARP funds received by cities and towns must be obligated for specific projects by December 31, 2024, and must be spent by December 31, 2026. 

The Municipal Association maintains a webpage, connecting officials with extensive guidance on handling federal ARP reporting requirements, including user guides, recorded webinars and presentations. 

The Association does not have access to the Department of Treasury's ARP reporting portal, but its field services managers, Charlie Barrineau, Ashley Kellahan and Naomi Reed, can assist local officials as they submit their report.

For general American Rescue Plan questions, contact Municipal Association Legislative and Public Policy Advocate Erica Wright at or 803.354.4793.

Municipalities can contact their specific Municipal Association field services manager by email or phone number online.
