On May 10, 2021, the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced the launch of the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds, established by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, to provide $350 billion in emergency funding for eligible state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments. The discussion will focus on the Treasury’s Interim Final Rule which provides guidelines and principles for determining the types of programs and services that this funding can support, together with examples of allowable uses that recipients, specifically local governments, may consider.
