Presentation Summary: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and The American Rescue Plan
Presentation Summary: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) were created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and designed to provide economic relief directly to Americans. The State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funding Program earmarks a subset of ARPA funds for State, local, and tribal governments specifically designated to create job opportunities for people in local communities and to bolster infrastructure. These separate funding streams, while having similar aims, do not have all of the same compliance and reporting requirements.
The guidance around compliance and reporting back on these separate funding streams can be particularly difficult to manage – especially with disparate data and systems. It can be especially difficult for tribal governments with a unique level of sovereignty, treaty-based funding, a lack of resources, staff turnover, and issues with managing separate awards that fund a variety of services. This session will provide you with an overview of the similarities and differences between the compliance and reporting requirements of these funding programs. Additionally, you will gain tips on how to create processes to support managing the funds your Nation has gained through these programs with centralized systems and data collection so you can concentrate on improving outcomes.
