Local Governments Receive Remaining Portion of ARPA-State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds

According to a press release, The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR), in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA), and on behalf of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury), distributed the second tranche payment of American Rescue Plan Act – State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (ARPA-SLFRF) to Wisconsin non-entitlement units (NEUs) of government today. A total of 1,824 Wisconsin NEUs are receiving a second payment of ARPA-SLFRF funding. The collaboration effort between DOA and DOR results in a distribution of over $205 million in relief funds to local governments in Wisconsin. NEUs are typically Wisconsin towns, villages and cities with a population under 50,000. Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, NEUs could apply for relief funding last year. The payments were to be distributed in two allocations; 50% was distributed in 2021, and the remaining portion was allocated today. Local governments are authorized to use their relief funds to:

  • Support public health expenditures

  • Address negative economic impacts caused by the public health emergency

  • Replace lost public sector revenue

  • Provide premium pay for essential workers

  • Invest in water, sewer and broadband infrastructure
