NC Pandemic Recovery Office (NCPRO) ARP Guidance and Pre-Contracting Requirements

New Information: The NC Pandemic Recover Office (NCPRO website) has updated guidance on the US Treasury Interim Final Rule and affiliated FAQ, as well as an overview of Governor Cooper's ARP Budget Recommendations.

Receiving ARP Funding: In order for non-entitlement communities to receive their appropriate ARP funding through the State, they must complete a Pre-Contracting Checklist, and submit it to NCPRO.

Budget Cap Requirement: According to guidance from the US Treasury, each non-entitlement unit of government (NEU)'s total award (the total of distribution of under both the First and Second Tranche) is capped at 75% of its total annual operating budget (including general fund and other funds) as of January 27th, 2020.

It is important for all communities to submit a Pre-Contracting Checklist to the NCPRO office to determine whether this 75% cap applies to their community.
