ARPA SLRF Reporting
US Treasury requires that the County submit quarterly reports detailing the financial status of its SLFRF award. These reports include programmatic and financial information and allow both the County and the federal government to routinely monitor the use of federal funds and transparently report on all Recovery Plan projects.
All Recipients (including County Departments) and subrecipients must complete the SLFRF Reporting Form every quarter through December 2026, even if no grant funds were spent or obligated during that reporting period.
The Recovery Office manages the reporting process through a web-based reporting tool that compiles individual project information into a single submission through the US Treasury system.
All County Departments managing Recovery Plan projects and subrecipients must complete the SLFRF Reporting Form four times a year no later than the “Deadline for Completion of Reporting:”

SLFRF REPORTING FORM EXPLANATION
The SLFRF Reporting Form collects financial and program status information every reporting period for each project included in the Recovery Plan. This web-based tool enables analysis, monitoring, and communication regarding each of the 112 projects included in the Recovery Plan, while ensuring compliance with US Treasury reporting requirements. In general, each quarter’s Reporting Form entries detail activity within the period defined as the immediately previous calendar quarter, as illustrated in the above reporting calendar.
Expenditure Categories: Each Recovery Plan project is assigned one Expenditure Category (EC) based on the type of program, defined by the US Treasury for their management of the national SLFRF program. All Recipient and Subrecipient projects have been assigned an EC, which are built in by the projects to the SLFRF Reporting Form, which displays only those questions pertinent to the project being reported on. EC-based questions in the Reporting Form are focused primarily on programmatic status. A list of Recovery Plan projects with their individual Expenditure Categories is available in the SLFRF Funds Management Manual (Appendix A). For more information click here.
