Townships should expect to receive an email notice from the state Office of the Budget (RA-OBEfirstname.lastname@example.org) about the redistribution of the first tranche (2021 distribution) of the American Rescue Plan funds. These are funds from municipalities that turned down or did not file for the ARP funds last year. The redistribution of funds is based on population and appears to be about 15 to 16 cents per person from 2019 Census estimates. The email will have Assignment: NEU1A and will be from Agency: Community and Economic and will be paid out July 15, 2022.
The second distribution and an additional redistribution for 2022 is expected to be sent in August.
