Request Funding


Local governments designated as non-entitlement units are eligible to receive Funds as provided in the American Rescue Plan Act. They will receive the funding directly from the state no later than 30 days after the state receives the funding. Non-entitlement communities SHOULD NOT request ARPA funds through the Treasury portal.
