In addition to the services we're actively providing at this time, the Institute has compiled this COVID-19 guide to resources for Georgia's Local Governments:
Looking for information on 2021's American Rescue Plan? We've launched a page devoted to the plan, which allocates relief to local and state governments.
The page offers links to current allocations, information from the U.S. Treasury and more.
The Institute of Government provided a series of free webinars to help government
leaders plan and think strategically about how to invest in their communities with
American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. These webinars, part of our Funding the Future series, covered the funding governments are receiving through ARPA, how it compares
to the recent CARES funding, ARPA allocations and distribution, audit requirements
and reporting, internal control, and strategic planning.
Check out Navigating Fiscal Crisis, a series of free webinars to help communities respond to the fiscal crisis caused
by the COVID-19 pandemic. Offered by the Institute's experts and provided with support
from AT&T, webinars cover making ends meet against revenue shortfalls, tools for budgeting
and analyzing the economy, planning for cashflow, short-term funding strategies and
communicating difficult financial decisions.
