As New York's cities and villages develop plans on how best to use ARPA funds in their communities, Treasury has just adopted its Final Rule, which includes additional flexibility in the use of ARPA funds. Also, the new deadline of April 30, 2022, for NEU's to file their first annual Project and Expenditure Report is rapidly approaching. This webinar, presented in partnership with the New York State Society of Municipal Finance Officers, will assist our members in understanding the important changes in the Final Rule and preparing for and complying with the reporting protocols. Topics covered will include the changes to the "lost revenue" calculation and eligible use definitions, reporting basics, how to establish an account on Treasury's NEU reporting portal, and related document requirements.
