Funding the Future: Investing in Your Community with ARPA Webinars The Institute of Government is providing 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, will cover 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.
Managing ARPA Funds webinar on June 29 from 10-11:30 a.m. The American Rescue Plan Act has allocated significant financial resources to local
governments of all sizes. These funds must eventually be accounted for, their use
reported, and subrecipients must be monitored. In Managing ARPA Funds, CVIOG faculty,
the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget, the State Accounting Office, the Georgia
Department of Audits and Accounts, Georgia Department of Community Affairs, as well
as city and county financial officers will discuss both mandatory requirements and
best practices in managing these funds.
