How to Invest ARP Funds in Utilities: An Infographic

A helpful, practical guide to investing American Rescue Plan funds into water and wastewater.

Among eligible expenditures for American Rescue Plan funds, perhaps no category offers as much broad flexibility as water and wastewater infrastructure. For example, if its eligible under the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, then its eligible under ARP.

If your community has decided to direct ARP monies towards those investments, the below infographic will provide a basic how-to guide to getting started. Options are provided for municipalities with utilities, municipalities without them, and municipalities where utility investments are not even an option.
