Counties, metropolitan cities and local governments can request their portion of federal Local Fiscal Recovery funding, provided by the American Rescue Plan.

“This funding provides immediate relief for local governments that have seen unprecedented fiscal challenges due to COVID-19,” said Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin. “I encourage every county, city and municipal government to take advantage of these funds that will help them recover from the pandemic and chart a course for long-term growth.”

As part of the American Rescue Plan, signed by President Joe Biden, the federal government is providing a total of approximately $6.15 billion to Pennsylvania counties, metropolitan cities and local government units to support COVID-19 response efforts, replace lost revenue, support economic stabilization for households and businesses, and address systemic public health and economic challenges.

The U.S. Treasury has established two separate methods for local governments to request these funds, depending on the type of local government. County governments and metropolitan city governments must request funds directly from the U.S. Department of the Treasury via their Submission Portal webpage.
