On January 6, 2022, the Treasury Department released its Final Rule for the American Rescue Plan Act’s $350 Billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (ARPA SLFRF). These flexible federal relief funds are reaching every unit of state, territorial, Tribal, county, and local government. These long-awaited regulations make important changes and clarifications to the ARPA SLFRF program, including explicitly authorizing communities around the country disproportionately impacted by the pandemic to use ARPA dollars to address vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Learn about changes and clarifications contained in the Final Rule that neighborhood stabilization stakeholders should know
  • Hear first-hand experiences from a land bank leader navigating the process of advocating for these funds at the local, county, and state levels
  • Ask questions about what this Final Rule means for your community
