    Treasury releases new information to help counties submit ARPA Recovery Fund Project and Expenditure Reports by April 30

    By April 30, all counties that received American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) State and Local Coronavirus Fiscal Recovery funds must submit a Project and Expenditure report to the U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury). These required, periodic reports provide Treasury with financial and current performance information on projects using ARPA recovery funds.

    To assist with this process, Treasury has published several resources to help counties through the reporting process, including the frequently asked questions below:

    1. Question: I have a number of questions about the reporting process, where is the best resource for general information about reporting?
      Recipients should visit Treasury’s reporting homepage for extensive information on the reporting process including a user guide with step-by-step instructions, how to videos, and other resources to answer commonly asked questions.
       
    2. Question: If I have an issue with submitting my report, what should I do?
      You can e-mail Treasury with a description and screenshot at your issue and send to SLFRF@treasury.gov or call our call center at 844-529-9527. Please copy questions@naco.org.
       
    3. Question: I can fill out the report but when I go to submit it says I am not the Authorized Representative and cannot submit.
      Treasury has updated roles for all counties at this time and recipients having this issue should try again to submit their report. If they need to change roles themselves, users can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/w7vbi94rVDIIf. If they continue to have issues, they should reach out to our helpdesk.
       
    4. Question: After logging in error message appears that says “No matching contact record was found. Please contact your Account Administrator to create a Contact Record for you in the system….”
      This means Treasury does not currently have this person’s email address listed as a contact person for a particular recipient. They should e-mail Treasury at SLFRF@treasury.gov or call our call center at 844-529-9527.
       
    5. Question: I sent an email requesting help but I have not heard back yet.
      Treasury has received a large number of messages from recipients and some recipients are experiencing a delay in receiving a response. Our helpdesk staff are working as fast as possible to respond to all messages in the order they were received. Recipients should avoid sending multiple emails to the inbox with the same question as this will further delay responses for recipients as helpdesk staff take the time to review duplicate inquiries.

    Treasury has also released a Project and Expenditure Report User Guide that provides counties with a step-by-step tutorial on the reporting portal. This resource includes details on the information Treasury seeks for some programmatic questions as well as screenshots of the portal with the questions counties can expect for each project. The User Guide is designed as a supplement to Treasury’s Compliance and Reporting Guidance.

    A series of webinars have also been made available by Treasury, focusing on common questions related to revenue loss, reporting tiers, bulk uploads and designating user roles in the portal. The complete list of Treasury’s recipient compliance and reporting resources can be found on its website here.

    As counties continue to prepare and submit their Project and Expenditure Reports, NACo encourages elected officials and staff to utilize these resources.
