AGENDA ITEM:
Presentation, Discussion and Possible Action Regarding the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Grant Award of $2,702,567.26 through the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund FY 2021 and Authorize the Town Manager and Town Attorney to Execute the Documents - Tonya Forbrook, Grant Administrator
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSFRF / CLFRF, or Fiscal Recovery Funds) are issued through the U.S. Treasury Department at the direction of the American Rescue Plan Act. The Town of Wickenburg has been awarded $2,702,567.26 in funding through Award No. AZ0062. This grant is more complicated and more restrictive in its uses than all other ARPA funds to date.  Staff is working with the Arizona League of Cities and Towns regarding ARPA funds utilization by other agencies around the state, and conducting research and meetings to determine what the Town of Wickenburg can use the funding for that will meet the rules and regulations of the Interim Final Rule (IFR). Staff will bring a list of options to the Council at a later date to discuss best uses of the funding. The IFR has been included for further review. Period of performance: March 3, 2021 to December 31, 2026.
 
SUGGESTED MOTION:
I move to accept the American Rescue Plan Act Grant Award of $2,702,567.26 to the Town of Wickenburg and authorize the Town Manager and Town Attorney to execute the documents.
