US Treasury has released the final ARPA Rule:  

NEU Updated Compliance and Reporting Guidance

At the end of 2021, the U.S. Treasury released a new Agreements and Supporting Documents User Guide to be used for compliance and reporting in Non-entitlement communities (typically those under 50,000 in population). The NEU specific document creates a new reporting portal called Login.gov which is designed to be more user friendly for smaller entities. The guidance provides instructions to NEUs on setting accounts, assigning reporting roles, and providing required documentation to Treasury. (January 3, 2022 Legislative Bulletin.)
