ARPA Reporting Deadline Approaching

An important reporting deadline is approaching regarding the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund program. The Project and Expenditure Report is due April 30, 2022. For many local governments, this will mark the first time filing reports with the U.S. Treasury.

It is crucial that all North Carolina cities and towns meet this April 30 deadline. Reporting and accounting for ARP funds will be among the foremost priorities of this generational opportunity, and while many questions remain about this step, there are numerous organizations ready to help you.

Resources and guidance are available now. The N.C. League has built a website devoted to ARP, and recently published a blogpost sharing resources directly related to this reporting deadline. That site can be found at, and that blog post can be reached here. Your local COG has many additional resources on the ARP and beyond. To find and contact your local COG, see here.

We are ready to help you now, both in meeting the upcoming reporting deadline and making other preparations for the investment of ARP funds.
