Deadline for ARPA relief funding is this Friday; 600 have already filed, but 1,200 communities still need to file to receive their funds
MADISON— There are approximately 1,200 Wisconsin municipalities eligible to receive Local Government Recovery Funds (LGRF) through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) that still need to file by the deadline of this Friday, June 18, 2021.
It is important for governments to apply. Funding for their communities can be used to address negative economic impacts of COVID-19, uplift essential workers, and invest in infrastructure programs.
Communities can find their estimated allocations from ARPA for 2021 and 2022 here under the heading Payment allocations. Monies will be distributed in two payments. The first will be provided at the end of June 2021 to those who file by the deadline, and the second will be sent in 2022.
Clerks or local authorities of villages, towns, and cities with populations under 50,000 people can file for the Coronavirus relief funding by accessing and e-filing their SL-330 form through their MyDORGov accounts.
To reach out to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) for any ARPA related questions, email DORLocalRecoveryFunds@wisconsin.gov or call (608) 266-2772.
