CITY FACT SHEET – POPULATION OF LESS THAN 50,000 / THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT (ARP) President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) into law on March 11, 2021. The $1.9 trillion spending package is designed to accelerate the post-COVID-19 economic recovery. ARP allocates $65.1 billion to cities as part of the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. • Population of Less than 50,000: $19.53 billion will be allocated to these municipalities, with allocations capped at 75% of a city's most recent budget as of January 27, 2020. Funds will be sent to the State and distributed to the local community based on population within 30 days of receipt unless an extension is granted. / WHEN CITIES RECEIVE ARP FUNDS Funding will be distributed by Treasury to cities in two tranches—one within 60 days of enactment (i.e., by May 10, 2021), and the second one year after the disbursement of the first tranche. Funds for municipalities with populations less than 50,000 will be disbursed to the States and distributed to the municipalities within 30 days of receipt (i.e., June 10, 2021 for the first tranche). The Department of Treasury will issue final guidance and regulations on ARP to address questions related to funding allocations, eligible uses of payments, and statutory ambiguity. ARP funds will be available until December 31, 2024.
