    • 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.
