1 hour CLE credit pending with the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Earlier this month the U.S. Treasury Department issued its final rule governing the use of state, county and local government funding under the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the Biden administration’s signature COVID-19 relief bill. The rule finalizes government’s use of $350 billion in ARPA money set aside under a portion of the aid package known as the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF).

In this webinar presented by the McDonald Hopkins Public Law Practice Group, public law attorneys Kevin Butler and Amanda Gordon will be joined by Marnie Fredrickson, Assistant Chief Deputy Auditor in Auditor of State Keith Faber’s office, to discuss appropriate uses of and accounting for SLFRF and other federal COVID-19 relief dollars that are flowing to local and regional governments.

Topics to be covered include:

  • How to document expenditures
  • Audit process
  • Procurement for projects under SLFRF
  • Project eligibility under the Final Rule
