Resource Hub for Counties: State, Local, Tribal and Territorial Fiscal Recovery, Infrastructure And Disaster Relief Flexibility Act
The bipartisan State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Fiscal Recovery, Infrastructure, and Disaster Relief Flexibility Act will provide additional flexibility for the $350 billion Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (Recovery Fund) authorized under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
On December 29, the President signed the Fiscal Year 2023 Omnibus Appropriations bill into law, which included the full text of H.R. 5735. As enacted, the bill will allow counties nationwide to use a total of over $27 billion for new transportation and infrastructure projects and over $17 billion for government services. NACo sent a letter to U.S. House leadership urging swift passage of S. 3011.
The Recovery Fund, which NACo helped develop and strongly advocated for its passage, is a historic investment in our nation’s counties. These funds provide direct, flexible aid for every county, parish and borough in America. The newly passed legislation will strengthen the Recovery Fund by providing counties with the flexibility to invest funds in transportation, infrastructure and government services. Additional guidance from the U.S. Department of Treasury is expected to be announced in the 60 days following the signing of the legislation into law.
The table below contains official values from the U.S. Senate of how much counties will be able to use towards transportation and infrastructure projects or government services under S. 3011.
