NCLM Webinar: Accessing American Rescue Plan Funding

May 11, 2021


For the more than 500 non-CDBG cities whose ARP funds will pass through the State of N.C., there are requirements that municipalities will need to complete before they can receive the funds.

The N.C. Pandemic Recovery Office has created a checklist of those requirements, and in partnership with the N.C. League, conducted an informational webinar on Tuesday, May 11 to share that information. 

The checklist and slides can be viewed on our State Guidance page, here. Additionally, we've published NCPRO's video series, which walks through the checklist process, here

American Rescue Plan: Primer for Municipal Officials (Webinar)

March 23, 2021

With the passage of the American Rescue Plan on March 11, direct assistance will be provided to cities and towns for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In North Carolina, those funds will total more than $1.3 billion. Billions more will be provided to counties and to the state.  


During this webinar, experts and experienced local leaders examined the ARP, expected funding, and allowable uses. They also provided key lessons from their experience with federal funds, and shared ways to prepare for needed accounting and administration.
