American Rescue Plan Act: A Roadmap For Local Government

Delivering answers and peace of mind as you navigate spending and compliance

Let us help you develop a compliant ARPA plan today

On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into law in the United States, establishing the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF). The SLFRF has $350 billion dollars available for state, local, and tribal governments to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and bring jobs back to their regions. But the new program has left cities, counties, and other authorities scrambling to navigate the complex spending and compliance requirements. Local governments need answers.

Beacon Economics has the expertise and experience to guide local leaders through the ARPA process, ensuring that you fully leverage the funding you’ve received for your community’s recovery from the pandemic. Our economists and policy analysts deliver practical, targeted, and immediately usable strategies to deploy economic development funding in compliance with ARPA/SLFRF rules and guidelines.

Our localized consulting approach will guide and assist your region’s response and its ability to distribute funds equitably, with a focus on those disproportionately impacted by the many effects of COVID-19. This funding can help keep people in their homes, connect workers to jobs, keep small businesses running, and track and mitigate the spread of the virus.

As the nation emerges from this historic and damaging pandemic, Beacon Economics is dedicated to working with local governments across the country to provide the latest ARPA/SLFRF guidance and help communities build strong, resilient, and widely inclusive futures.
