Provision of Government Services

ARPA allows recipients to use funds to replace lost revenue in order to avoid cuts to governmental services, or to return services to their pre-pandemic level. The Interim Final Rule prescribes a formula and requires that the revenue loss be calculated at the entity-wide level, and specifies which revenues are allowable and which are excluded.

ARPA aims to respond to the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Interim Final Rule outlines that ARPA resources can be used for assistance to households, small businesses, and nonprofits, as well as to offer aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality.

SUPPORT PUBLIC HEALTH RESPONSE

The ARPA aid may be utilized by municipalities to mitigate the public health crisis stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and to bring the pandemic under control.

BROADBAND INFRASTRUCTURE

ARPA also recognizes the need for improved broadband infrastructure and faster speeds, especially to underserved households and businesses.

Fiscal Recovery Funds payments may be used by recipients to provide premium pay to eligible workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency or to provide grants to third-party employers with eligible workers performing essential work. These are workers who have been and continue to be relied on to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors, including those who are critical to protecting the health and wellbeing of their communities.
