City-by-City Funding

Updated July 28, 2021

Cities and towns in North Carolina will directly receive more than $1.3 billion. For metropolitan cities, the funding amount has been finalized, as of May 10, 2021. For non-metro, or non-CDBG towns, the first tranche has been provided to a number of municipalities as of Sept. 8, and NC PRO hopes to complete the first tranche by the end of August 2021. 

Additionally, at the bottom of this page, we continue to provide our initial estimates for all municipalities.

Metropolitan City Final Totals

On May 10, 2021, the U.S. Treasury formally launched the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund and the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund established under the American Rescue Plan Act.

This program will provide funding directly to CDBG designated cities. Please note, that for the purposes of this program, municipalities of a sufficient size qualify under this designation, even if they are not otherwise participants of the federal CDBG program. 

In North Carolina, this is 26 municipalities. The list below is the official total that these local governments will receive under the ARP.

Estimates for All N.C. Municipalities

For non-metro, or non-CDBG towns, funding will be provided through the state. 

Disclaimer: The spreadsheet linked below is simply an estimate. Though many disbursement totals have become more finalized and understood in recent months, we continue to provide the intial estimates, as released by Congressional staff on March 8, 2021. They represent the best estimates of distributions under the federal American Rescue Plan (ARP) as of that time.
