The U.S. Treasury Department is now accepting the Project and Expenditure Report for the American Rescue Plan program. The form is due from all townships, called non-entitlement units (NEUS), by April 30, 2022, even if your township did not spend any of the funds as of March 31
To assist its members, PSATS staff will host a Town Hall on Filing the ARPA Project and Expenditure Report on Tuesday, April 12, at 2 p.m. and again on Wednesday, April 13, at 10 a.m. During these virtual sessions, PSATS staff will demonstrate the most efficient way to file the forms, while ensuring that townships take the standard allowance for lost revenues, a one-time option that will provide maximum flexibility for use of the funds. The session will include trouble-shooting tips. Click here to register for the 2 p.m. session on April 12 and click here to register for the 10 a.m. session on April 13.
Township officials can access Treasury’s portal using an existing login.gov account information (the same login used for SAM.gov) at https://portal.treasury.gov/compliance. You do not need to use an ID.me account to access the portal. Townships should use Treasury’s Login.gov User’s Guide to take the first steps to link with your township’s Treasury Portal. Then use the NEU Agreements and Supporting Documents Guide, which has step-by-step instructions with screenshots to help users navigate the portal and designate an Account Administrator, Point of Contact for Reporting, and Authorized Representative for Reporting. As part of the annual filing, townships must upload the same documents that your township submitted to DCED last year as part of the request for funding. A program User Guide was also released to assist with the filing of the reports.
If you see individuals in your account who are not affiliated with your township, do not recognize the DUNS number, or are unable to change roles, your account may have been accidentally merged with that of another township. If so, please send an email to Treasury at COVIDReliefITSupport@treasury.gov, and copy Katie Lizza, PSATS Policy & Research Analyst, at email@example.com or call 717-763-0930. If you have any other technical issues, please reach out to COVIDReliefITSupport@treasury.gov
