- Complete your Project and Expenditure Report Using the Standard Allowance for Revenue Loss for the full amount of your ARPA award.
The first NEU reporting deadline for ARPA funding was April 30, 2022. The U.S. Department of the Treasury recommended that all ARPA recipients with an award less than $10 million should elect the "Standard Allowance" for revenue loss and spend their funds on the "provision of government services" (Expenditure Category 6.1 Revenue Replacement). This approach provides the greatest flexibility in spending these dollars and simplicity in reporting. *** If your municipality did not elect the "Standard Allowance" for revenue loss during the last reporting period then it may do so through the April 30, 2023. ***
There are many resources to help you meet the funding's compliance and reporting requirements. US Treasury has produced webinars that are a great place to start. You should also make sure to review the User Guides and the Final Rule (FR).
