State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds for Non-Entitlement Units of Local Government Resources and Information

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) has allocated approximately $528.96M in State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRFs) to Non-Entitlement Units (NEUs) of Local Government, as defined in section 603(g)(5) of the Social Security Act. Under ARPA, the State of Maryland is required to distribute funds and requirements to NEUs within 30 days upon receipt of SLFRFs from the US Treasury. Funds will be distributed in two tranches, with the initial allocation (50 percent of total allocation) disbursed upfront and the second allocation to follow 12 months later.
