The Texas Association of Regional Councils hosts a webpage containing COVID-19 updates and resources. In their July 9th update, TARC reported that TDEM contacted the local governments that are eligible for funding as non-entitlement units (NEUs) to let them know that the state will soon announce the availability of American Rescue Plan Act Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CLFRF). The state will formally apply for funding on August 2nd, or when 90 percent of the NEU required information is received. TDEM is asking NEUs to submit program documentation by August 2nd. More details, including specifics on CLFRF, the American Rescue Act, payment timelines, and eligibility can be found here.
