Treasury Portal: ARP Reporting and Compliance Site Now Open
The Treasury Portal has launched for non-entitlement units.
Treasury this week launched its Treasury Portal for non-entitlement units (NEUs) receiving American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds under the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF). This portal will be used for reporting and compliance, and is now available to be accessed.
Below, we highlight the most important information regarding the portal, including its fundamental purpose, requirements and deadlines, resources, how to access it, and how to use it.
Recipients of ARP/SLFRF distributions must abide by U.S. Treasury's reporting and compliance responsibilities, which have been previously clarified in detail in a document titled Compliance and Reporting Guidance.
For NEUs, those reporting requirements should be met using this Treasury Portal. NEUs will confirm accounts, designate reporting roles, and submit required agreements and supporting documentation to Treasury.
Requirements and Deadlines
NEU’s must submit Project and Expenditure reports annually. These reports will include the following information:
Project, obligation and expenditure data
Required programmatic data
Civil right compliance information
Deadline is April 30, 2022, and will cover March 3, 2021 to March 21, 2022.
All future reports also due annually by end of April
Start now! Beginning this week, NEUs can complete the following tasks:
Access Treasury Portal
Designate SLFRF reporting roles
Submit required agreements and supporting documentation. (Further information on these requirements can be found in the Compliance and Reporting Guidance.)
To assist SLFRF recipients with login into Treasury’s Portal, a User Guide has been provided to assist NEUs in confirming their reporting roles and providing the required documentation to Treasury.
In addition, Treasury plans to host a series of webinars to help NEUs understand and comply with relevant reporting requirements closer to the deployment of Treasury’s Reporting Portal in the spring. Information on those events will be posted on this site when announced.
How to Access Portal
Registration and Login
There are two options for logging in, ID.me and Login.gov. Please note, if you have not yet registered with either service, the League recommends Login.gov over ID.me for convenience and a less onerous registration process. However, both are secure and legitimate.
Have an ID.me account?
Then proceed with this link: https://portal.treasury.gov/cares/s/slt
Don’t have an ID.me account?
After your account has been created and verified, you will be redirected to Treasury’s State, Local, and Tribal Support portal to log in, confirm your roles and provide your SLFRF information. For best site performance, it is recommended that you use Google Chrome.
As part of SLFRF award administration, each SLFRF recipient must designate individuals to serve as its official points of contact for SLFRF reporting to Treasury. As a recipient you will need to designate individual(s) in your organization for each of the following three roles:
Point of Contact for Reporting
Authorized Representative for Reporting
For more information, see Section II of the SLFRF User Guide.
