State and Local Funds | American Rescue Plan Funds

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) provided one of the largest economic relief programs in U.S. history. The law included many updates to COVID relief programs affecting nonprofits.

Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF)

Under the American Rescue Plan Act, Congress allocated $350 billion in in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) for state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments to use in providing “assistance to households, small businesses, and nonprofits, or to aid impacted industries” (emphasis added).  The federal government showed tremendous trust that governments closest to the people and their problems are best positioned to decide the best ways to spend their allocations to meet local needs. SLFRF resources are allocated separately to states, to counties, to metropolitan cities, and "non-entitlement areas" (local governments typically serving populations of less than 50,000, including cities, towns, townships, and villages). 

Nonprofits have many questions about eligibility, types of programs, and processes for building and implementing programs. Those questions, and more, are answered in the Accessing State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds page.
