TODAY, AUGUST 31 is the deadline for counties to submit the Interim Report and Recovery Plan Performance Report for the U.S. Treasury Department’s American Rescue Plan (ARP) Fiscal Recovery Fund.
- The Interim Report must be completed by all counties that have certified for Recovery Funds.
- The Recovery Plan Performance Report must be completed by counties that have a population of 250,000 and above.
As a reminder, only counties that received Recovery Funds prior to July 15, 2021 are required to sumbit Recovery Fund reports to the U.S. Treasury by today, August 31. If your county received Recovery Funds after July 15, 2021, you must submit your reports within 60 days of receiving funding.
UPDATE FOR COUNTIES IMPACTED BY HURRICANE IDA
Treasury recognizes that Hurricane Ida has impacted the ability of some counties to submit reports by the deadline. If your county is in Alabama, Louisiana or Mississippi and has been impacted by the hurricane, you can notify Treasury, providing a clear explanation of why the report is unable to be submitted on time and proposing a specific date by which you will submit the report. Treasury will document this information in its reporting system so that your jurisdiction will not be included in any public reporting about jurisdictions that failed to submit reports in a timely manner.
This extension is eligible for counties in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi only. To notify Treasury that your county has been impacted by the hurricane and requires an extension, email SLFRP@treasury.gov.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE REVENUE CALCULATION IN THE REPORTING PORTAL
Treasury understands that some entities have not yet completed revenue replacement calculations. In order to complete the Interim Report under these circumstances, you can use the best available estimate (or put zero if no estimate is available) in the required revenue replacement fields for now. You can also use the text field to explain that your government is still determining the revenue replacement amount and how it will be spent.
You will have an opportunity to update it in subsequent reporting and Treasury will not interpret zero in the Interim Report as final.
REPORTING PORTAL WALKTHROUGH
To assist counties, the U.S. Treasury released a recorded presentation providing a walkthrough of the reporting portal and instructions on completing required reports. Access the U.S. Treasury’s Compliance and Reporting Requirements webpage with more information on how to complete the reports here.
