American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 Information Page

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill. Within the ARPA, the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (CSLFRF) provides $350 billion for states, municipalities, counties, tribes, and territories, including $130 billion for local governments split evenly between municipalities and counties. This webpage provides important information for cities and towns in New Hampshire on ARPA and the CSLFRF.

NLC Resources for NEUs as April 30th Approaches!

Many municipalities are still having issues with the Treasury's reporting portal, as NLC continues to receive daily emails outlining this problem.

To help make sure these municipalities receive an answer to their IT related questions as quickly as possible, NLC has partnered with Treasury's IT department to help expedite service tickets.

Please let your municipalities know that in addition to sending an email to Treasury or calling Treasury, they can send an email to SLFRFhelp@nlc.org. We will push these emails to Treasury to TRY to get a resolution in a reasonable time frame.

We expect a high volume of emails this week and will do our best to work with Treasury to get every IT-related email sent to the above inbox resolved.

Additionally, NLC has prepared two blogs that NEUs can reference to help navigate the process of filing their annual reports; the blogs can be found here and here

Below are commonly asked questions from municipalities that the Treasury Department has compiled in Q&A format. These answers may be useful in responding to a municipality's questions.

 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.

 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 NEUs 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: youtu.be/w7vbi94rVDIIf. If they continue to have issues, they should reach out to our helpdesk.

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.

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.

Finally, Treasury sent two communications out about the second tranches of funding. You can find these two communications below.

Competitive Infrastructure Funding Opportunities for Local Governments Established by Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Transportation

Rebuilding American Infrastructure Sustainably and Equitably (RAISE) Grants– This existing competitive grant program at the Department of Transportation provides $7.5 billion with an additional $7.5 billion subject to Congressional approval in funding for road, rail, transit, and other surface transportation of local and/or regional significance. Selection criteria safety, sustainability, equity, economic competitiveness, mobility, and community connectivity. Applications will open in the first quarter of 2022. 

Port Infrastructure Development Program GrantsThis existing $2 billion Department of Transportation program funds investment in the modernization and expansion of U.S. ports to remove supply chain bottlenecks, ensure long-term competitiveness, resilience, and sustainability while reducing impacts to the environment and neighboring communities. The infrastructure law expanded the program’s eligibilities to include projects that improve goods movement, as well as port electrification projects, idling reduction solutions, equipment charging infrastructure and related worker training initiatives. The Department of Transportation expects to open applications in February 2022.

Bus & Bus Facilities Competitive GrantsThis existing $2 billion program at the Department of Transportation provides capital funding to replace, rehabilitate, purchase, or lease buses and bus related equipment and to rehabilitate, purchase, construct, or lease bus-related facilities – as well as capital funding for low or no emissions bus projects. Fiscal Year 2021 grant selections will be announced soon. Applications are expected to open for the Fiscal Year 2022 grant program in the first quarter of 2022.

National Infrastructure Project Assistance (also known as “Megaprojects” or MEGA)– This $5 billion competitive grant program supports multi-modal, multi-jurisdictional projects of regional or national significance. Communities are eligible to apply for funding to complete critical large projects that would otherwise be unachievable without assistance. Selection criteria for the program will be posted on the Department of Transportation website in February 2022.

Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) GrantsThis Department of Transportation program supports highway and rail projects of regional and economic significance. Applications will open in the first quarter of 2022. Learn more about how to apply here.

Safe Streets and Roads for All – This new $5 billion competitive grant program at the Department of Transportation will provide funding directly to and exclusively for local governments to support their efforts to advance “vision zero” plans and other complete street improvements to reduce crashes and fatalities, especially for cyclists and pedestrians. Applications are expected to open in May 2022.

Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grants – In addition to the $5 billion formula program distributed to states, this $2.5 billion discretionary grant program at the Department of Transportation will fund the strategic deployment of publicly accessible electric vehicle charging infrastructure, as well as hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure, along designated alternative fuel corridors and in communities.  The Department is seeking comments on program design by January 28th here, and after January 28th here.

Clean School Bus Program – This new $5 billion competitive grant program at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will provide funding to replace existing school buses with low- or zero-emission school buses. Applications for funding will be made available here later this spring.

Reconnecting Communities – The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law creates a first-ever $1 billion program at the Department of Transportation to reconnect communities divided by transportation infrastructure – particularly historically disadvantaged communities too often nearly destroyed or cut in half by a highway. This new competitive program will provide dedicated funding to state, local, metropolitan planning organizations, and tribal governments for planning, design, demolition, and reconstruction of street grids, parks, or other infrastructure to address these legacy impacts. Applications will open in the second quarter of 2022.

Rural Surface Transportation Grant - This new $2 billion competitive grant program at the Department of Transportation will improve and expand surface transportation infrastructure in rural areas, increasing connectivity, improving safety and reliability of the movement of people and freight, and generate regional economic growth. This amount includes specific set asides for small projects ($200 million), rural roadway lane departure improvements ($300 million), and the Appalachian Development Highway System ($500 million). Applications will open in the first quarter of 2022. 


Climate, Energy & Environment

ARPA Funds & The Broadband Planning Network

The New Hampshire Municipal Association (NHMA) has partnered with the National Collaborative for Digital Equity (NCDE), founded and based in New Hampshire, to help communities that are interested in using Local and Fiscal Recovery Funds (LFRF) to improve broadband.  NHMA and NCDE are working together to bring interested members the opportunity to join an NHMA/NCDE broadband planning network and to undertake broadband investment planning together.  

Overview of the Broadband Planning Network
NCDE proposes that interested members allocate to NCDE a portion of their municipality’s ARPA Local Relief Funds (based on population, see below) to join the broadband investment planning network, whose priorities will be to: (1) assist the participating municipalities to develop one or more joint broadband investment funding proposals, (2) design investment plans to support for-profit and nonprofit business models that incorporate affordable pricing (<$15/month) for low- and moderate-income households; (3) assist participating municipalities to become “Broadband Ready” communities while developing NHMA’s capability to provide this support as an ongoing support to members generally; and (4) other broadband projects as deemed fundable.   

Broadband planning network cost schedule, based on population

25-4,999: $5,000

5,000-9,999: $7,500

10,000 and greater: $10,000

Please note that NHMA receives a fee for each municipality that joins the broadband planning network with NCDE. 

Please complete this form if you are interested in learning more about the NCDE broadband opportunity.

IMPORTANT NOTICES for NEUs

  • Do you have your SAM.gov registration yet? NEUs were not required to have their SAM registration before applying, but it is still required and make take several weeks to be processed. If your entity has not yet applied, do so as soon as possible. SAM is the official government-wide database to register with in order to do business with the U.S. government. All Federal financial assistance recipients must register on SAM.gov and renew their SAM registration annually to maintain an active status to be eligible to receive federal financial assistance. There is no charge to register or maintain your entity SAM registration. Any website seeking a fee is fraudulent. Please visit SAM.gov to begin the entity registration or renewal process. Please note that SAM registration can take up to three weeks; delay in registering in SAM could impact timely payment of funds. Click here for a quick overview for SAM registration.
  • NHMA encourages NEUs to move slowly on making decisions about expenditure of their funds. There is no rush to spend funds (funds may be spent or obligated through December 31, 2024; funds obligated by that date may be spent through December 31, 2026). NHMA encourages NEUs to take time to learn about the eligible uses and reporting requirements and assess and determine the highest and best use of funds through careful vetting and after receiving public comment on proposed uses.

US Treasury Guidance Specific to "NEUs"

The above FAQ is a live document link that is updated regularly. We recommended checking back regularly or bookmarking the link for easy access.


Compliance & Reporting Requirements


Eligible Uses of CSLFRF monies 

In brief, the basic purposes for which the funds can be used are as follows:

1. Public Health
2. Negative Economic Impacts
3. Services to Disproportionality Impacted Communities
4. Premium Pay*
5. Infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Broadband)
6. Revenue replacement^
7. Administrative expenses (relative to administering/spending/reporting on use of LFRF money)


The Final Rule provides a standard allowance for a loss up to $10 million in revenue depending on the amount of the award. This allows local governments to choose between a standard amount of revenue loss or to complete a revenue loss calculation.

Recipients who choose the standard allowance may use that amount for government services, with streamlined reporting requirements.

Government services are defined as any service traditionally provided by a government.  This includes, but is not limited to: programs such as road construction and other infrastructure, public safety programs, and health and educational and recreational activities.

Recipients may choose a 'standard allowance' of $10 million to spend on government services through the period of performance.

Recipients may choose to use this standard allowance instead of calculating lost revenue, including those with total allocations of $10 million or lower.

Electing to accept the standard allowance of $10 million will not increase or decrease the recipient’s total allocation.

Below is the new process for calculating revenue loss: (the GFOA Revenue Loss Calculator may be used.)

Calculate revenues generated in the most recent full fiscal year prior to the pandemic (i.e., last full fiscal year before January 27, 2020), called the base year revenue.

Estimate counterfactual revenue, which is equal to the following formula, where n is the number of months elapsed since the end of the base year to the calculation date:

base year revenue  x (1 + growth adjustmentn/12

The growth adjustment is the greater of either a standard growth rate—5.2%—or the recipient’s average annual revenue growth in the last full three fiscal years prior to the pandemic.  Treasury increased the growth rate to 5.2% from 4.1% in the Interim Rule.

Identify actual revenue, which equals revenues collected over the twelve months immediately preceding the calculation date. Under the final rule, recipients must adjust actual revenue totals for the effect of tax cuts and tax increases that are adopted after January 6, 2022 (date of adoption of the Final Rule).

Revenue loss for the calculation date is equal to counterfactual revenue minus actual revenue (adjusted for tax changes) for the twelve-month period. If actual revenue exceeds counterfactual revenue, the loss is set to zero for that twelve-month period. Revenue loss for the period of performance is the sum of the revenue loss on for each calculation date.

For further guidance on the calculation, please refer to the Final Rule which provides an example of this calculation in the Revenue Loss section (page 237).


*Guidance on Treatment of ‘Premium Pay’ Under ARPA 

In a press release dated May 19, 2021, The New Hampshire Retirement System (NHRS, the retirement system) has determined that “Premium Pay” under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is earnable compensation for retirement calculation purposes and subject to member and employer contributions.

Premium Pay is optional additional compensation funded by federal money provided to state and local governments under ARPA for eligible workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Premium Pay is not mandated under ARPA, but the law gives employers the option to grant this additional pay, up to $13 per hour, and not to exceed $25,000.00 per eligible worker, to employees deemed eligible under US Treasury rules.  NHRS views this as a temporary increase in the member’s base rate of compensation.  If a participating employer authorizes Premium Pay to an NHRS member, the compensation should be reported to the retirement system as base compensation, and member and employer contributions should be remitted.

Other key provisions
  • States are not allowed to use the funds to either directly or indirectly offset a reduction in the net tax revenue that results from a change in law, regulation or administrative interpretation during the covered period that reduces any tax
  • No funds shall be deposited into any pension fund
  • State and local governments are allowed to transfer to a private nonprofit organization, a public benefit corporation involved in the transportation of passengers or cargo, or a special-purpose unit of state or local government.

Distributions to Local Government

Amount of Distributions to Local Government

The U.S. Department of Treasury has released the direct payments to NH's five metropolitan communities. For all other municipalities (towns and cities that are NEUs), the state has calculated the municipal distributions and the portal for requesting funds is open on the GOFERR website. (Please refer to NEU specific information near the top of this page.) 
  • For comparison/informational purposes only, you can view the original Estimated Allocation Amounts to state & local governments (Date: 3/08/2021; Source: NLC)
  • Also for comparison/informational purposes only, you can use this NLC allocation tool to view the estimated amount your community is eligible for. (These are estimates from the House Committee on Oversight, not final allocations. )

Nonentitlement – Additional Distribution Information:

  • “Nonentitlement” is short for “nonentitlement unit of local government,” which is the term used in the ARPA for cities, townships, villages, and small municipalities that generally have fewer than 50,000 inhabitants. Those allocations are proportionate to population and are subject to a cap of 75% of the locality’s most recent budget as of January 27, 2020.
  • Are village districts eligible to receive ARPA funds? Per US Treasury, village districts will not receive a portion of the state's allocations to NEUs. Instead, the US Treasury FAQ states that village districts are eligible to access ARPA funds in the following manner as "special-purpose units of government":
    • 1.3. Are special-purpose units of government eligible to receive funds?
      Special-purpose units of local government will not receive funding allocations; however, a state, territory, local, or Tribal government may transfer funds to a special-purpose unit of government. Special-purpose districts perform specific functions in the community, such as fire, water, sewer or mosquito abatement districts.
  • Cap on Distribution: The American Rescue Act includes a provision stating no city with less than 50,000 residents can receive a grant that is larger than an amount equal to 75% of their pre-pandemic budget, regardless of whether the estimates indicate an amount greater than that figure.  This is not accounted for in the “estimated allocation amounts” because data on small city budgets is not systematically collected by any federal entity.  US Treasury has released an update on the interpretation of the 75% budget cap.
  • Reference Guide: Understanding further allocations between CDBG communities and nonentitlement communities (NLC)

Timing of Distributions

  • First "Tranche" Amount – 50%:  The ARPA requires that, to the extent practical, the state distribute the first installment of the SLFRF monies to NEUs not later than 60 days from the date of enactment.
    • Nonentitlement Distributions - NEUs must submit their request to receive  their funds by August 18, 2021, using GOFERR's online portal, which can be accessed through the GOFERR webpage

  • Second "Tranche" Amount – 50%:  Per the ARPA, the second installment of money must be provided by the state to the NEUs not earlier than 12 months after the date of the first installment.
  • The metropolitan communities receive their funding directly from US Treasury.
