State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds

What are the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds?

Established by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Program (SLFRP) provides $350 billion in emergency fiscal recovery funding (FRF) for eligible state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments. All state and local governments are eligible for some amount of aid to respond to acute pandemic needs, fill revenue shortfalls, and provide much needed support to populations hardest-hit by COVID-19.
