American Rescue Plan Act Reporting: Steps to Take Right Now

March 21, 2022

It’s time to establish an ARPA Reporting Account and confirm your city’s registration on SAM.gov, the official site for doing business with the federal government.

Now is the time for non-entitlement cities (NEUs) to begin the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) reporting process and to ensure the city’s registration on SAM.gov is active. Set up an account now, so you are ready when the U.S. Treasury Department makes the Project and Expenditure Report available.

The first thing to do is to watch the U.S. Treasury video Reporting Non-Entitlement Units of Local Government. This video walks through the steps NEUs (generally cities with populations under 50,000) must take now to create a login.gov account, access the Treasury portal, assign reporting roles, and upload required documents.

Here is a quick to-do list:

  1. Create a login.gov account. Already have one? Go to step 2.
  2. Access Treasury’s portal:
  3. Visit Sam.gov to register or renew registration.

Step 3 is necessary because an active SAM.gov registration is required to submit the ARPA Project and Expenditure Report.
