More than $479.8 million disbursed over the past eight weeks
Harrisburg, PA - Treasurer Stacy Garrity announced today that the eighth batch of payments under the American Rescue Plan Act’s (ARPA) Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery program has been sent to qualifying Pennsylvania municipalities.
Disbursements made this week to 30 municipalities total $2 million. Combined with previous payments, that means 2,304 Pennsylvania municipalities have received more than $479.8 million. Current payment information can be found on this interactive map on Treasury’s website.
ARPA gave states the responsibility to disburse these federal funds to municipalities with fewer than 50,000 residents. Pennsylvania has more than 2,500 municipalities that qualify for these payments.
Larger municipalities were required to apply to the U.S. Department of the Treasury in order to receive payments directly from the federal government.
