KACo Membership Briefing: New ARPA guidelines

This page includes links to resources related to the KACo Membership Briefing held on Jan. 28, 2022 on new American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) guidelines and federal procurement rules.


The U.S. Treasury recently released the Final Rule for the use of ARPA funds. The Final Rule allows counties to use up to $10 million of ARPA Recovery Funds as “lost revenue” for the provision of general government services without needing to use the Treasury revenue loss formula.

This membership briefing on January 28, 2022 provided details on the Final Rule and guidance on federal procurement requirements.
