Between the CARES Act’s Coronavirus Relief Fund and the American Rescue Plan’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, governments have been allocated over $500 billion in direct stimulus aid from the federal government. This IT-friendly, versatile funding can support a variety of digital government service initiatives. However, it’s critical to move quickly in order to determine how your government can secure these funds. By December 31, 2021, governments must have obligated their Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) or return them to the federal government. For those states and municipalities who have spent their CRF allocation, the focus shifts to how they may leverage Fiscal Recovery Funds.
