Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott announced that cities, towns and villages should expect additional American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Local Fiscal Recovery (ARPA-LRF) funds over the next several days.
The State will disburse another payment of $60.6 million in ARPA-LRF to 276 eligible local governments.
The $60.6 million distributed on September 2 represents the first of these two payments. The county funds are distributed to eligible local governments based on the proportion of the municipality’s population to the county population.
The average payment of local fiscal recovery funds with today’s disbursements and the separate $29 million distributed in July of this year equates to $150 per resident.
Amounts disbursed to the State of Vermont under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 will be redistributed to Vermont municipalities within 30 days of receipt by the State of Vermont.
Payments will be made to the municipalities in 2021 and 2022 with additional guidance on the 2022 payment forthcoming from the Department of the Treasury.
Certification by municipalities is required in order to receive State and Local Fiscal Recovery funds. More information is available at https://finance.vermont.gov/covid-19-guidance.
