The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 (Pub. L. 117-2), signed into law by President Biden earlier this year, provides some $1.9 trillion in economic stimulus funding for numerous programs across the government to help the country recover from the economic and health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
ARPA funds will provide needed relief to state, local and tribal governments, as well as to universities and other nonfederal entities, to enable them to continue to support the public health response and encourage an economic recovery. ARPA programs – such as the $350 billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund – will help governments address the revenue losses they have experienced as a result of the crisis. It will assist in replacing costs incurred due to responding to the public health emergency and aim to provide support for a recovery through assistance to households, small businesses and nonprofits, aid to impacted industries, and support for essential workers. Other programs – such as the Rental Assistance Program and Unemployment Compensation under ARPA – also are designed to aid those economically struggling during the pandemic.
Nonfederal entities also should be aware that the Office of Management and Budget is requiring federal agencies to use these funds for programs that encourage fair and equitable administration of financial assistance and valuable program outcomes. There is much to learn about the distribution of these emergency funds, and grantee responsibilities for managing them correctly.
