The American Rescue Plan Act: Guidance for Wisconsin Counties in Implementation of the Local Fiscal Recovery Fund
President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARPA”) into law on March 11, 2021. ARPA is a $1.9 trillion federal spending package intended to provide economic and other relief related to the covid-19 pandemic.
The Wisconsin Counties Association and its general counsel, von Briesen & Roper, s.c., have received many questions surrounding ARPA, interpretation of its terms, and its impact on counties.
See the Guidance for Wisconsin Counties in Implementation of the Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, as prepared by WCA general counsel, by clicking here.
County officials are encouraged to review this guidance carefully with corporation counsel to ensure appropriate interpretation and otherwise assess the impact of any local rules, policies and regulations.
