American Rescue Plan Act

Are Your ARPA Funds in Compliance? With Only Months Left to Avoid Government Clawback - Act Now!

Avoid Government Clawback

Did you know that American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) State & Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) must be 100% obligated by December 31, 2024?

Obligation: According to the U.S. Treasury S35.3, is an order placed for property and services and entering into contracts, sub-awards, and similar transactions that require payment.

This means local governments must budget all received ARPA funds AND must enter into a service agreement, contract, or purchase order by the end of 2024 or the “unobligated” funds will be returned to the U.S. Treasury.

GrantWorks’ expertise in federal program management and compliance offers substantial benefits in navigating complex matters and gaining access to essential technical support.
