October 31 ARPA Reporting Deadline
The first reporting deadline of August 31 for ARPA funds has passed (required only by counties and metropolitan cities), with a few hiccups along the way. The next deadline of October 31 affects all local government recipients. Please take a few minutes to review a new document from the NC Pandemic Recovery Office called Reporting to Treasury on Local Fiscal Recovery Funds – Where Do I Start? October 31 seems far away but several people have reported issues with getting set up for reporting, and many units had issues with the reporting itself. Please do not wait until October 31 to start this process. Go ahead and get your identified staff that are responsible for reporting set up in the system and start working on your report itself as soon as you can. We will continue to issue more guidance as it’s available.
U.S. Treasury also has published a document on the feedback received on the Interim Final Rule. Please find that document here.
