ARPA Utilization Data by State

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 – a $1.9 trillion economic relief package – was signed by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021. The act includes $350 billion in new funding for state, local, territorial and tribal governments through the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. Within that fund, $195 billion is distributed directly to state governments, with wide discretion for how funding can be used to address short- and long-term economic recovery. CSG analysts have worked with the National Association of State Budget Officers to collect information through December 2021. This page only includes state allocations of funds from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, not from other sources of ARPA funding.

To navigate to a specific state’s allocation, click on the state in the map, the state hyperlink below the map, or “Jump To” from the dropdown menu.

NOTE: The CSG State ARPA Utilization Database includes information through December 2021. CSG is no longer collecting new data. However research, analysis and documentation will be shared in the months ahead.

Policies and guidelines developed under this provision shall be made publicly available on the Labor and Workforce Development Agency’s internet website. (4) (A) The Inter-Agency Leadership Team shall consist of the senior cabinet-level appointees, or their designees, representing the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, the Office of Planning and Research, and the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, with policy guidance from subject matter experts within those state entities.

(c) (1) The program shall provide financial support to establish and support high road transition collaboratives in designing region- and industry-specific economic recovery and transition strategies. The program shall include a focus on those regions and communities most affected by the economic impact of COVID-19, as authorized in federal guidance, and whose economic distress has been exacerbated by COVID-19 and compounded by macroeconomic impacts, such as the global transition to carbon neutrality or the western region of the United States’ acute vulnerability to climate change impacts. (2) The program, through these collaboratives, shall support transparent and inclusive processes for shared problem solving to advance long-term prosperity and equity.

This plan shall include industry cluster and labor market analysis, with actionable research and consultation from the University of California or other expert institutions, and focus on economic recovery, growth, and resilience across multiple sectors. The plans shall prioritize the creation of high-quality jobs and equitable access to them, and emphasize where possible the development of sustainable and resilient industries, such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, carbon removal, and zero-emission vehicles, advanced manufacturing, agriculture and forestry, and climate restoration and resilience. (3) Disseminate these transition plans to all interested parties. The plan or plans provided by each high road transition collaborative shall be made publicly available on the Labor and Workforce Development Agency’s internet website. (e) (1) Implementation grants shall be awarded on a rolling and competitive basis.

(E) Organize strategies by industry or geography, or both, within and across regions, with the potential to focus on regionwide strategies or on one or more specific priority projects within a region. (F) Include a range of activities related to economic diversification, including, but not limited to, creating innovation hubs for key growth industries, expanding incubator or accelerator programs that provide technical assistance for small business owners to connect to larger industry clusters, and other projects and activities that advance a high road economy.

(H) Align with regional workforce needs by linking directly to high road training partnerships or high road construction careers training programs wherever such partnerships exist or emerge in the region.

Authorizing Language: Section 1. (b) In 2020, the Colorado opportunity scholarship initiative responded to needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic by creating the displaced workers grant.

These workers have an incentive to reskill, upskill, or complete industry-recognized credentials in order to improve economic prospects for themselves and their communities. (c) Appropriating a portion of the money received pursuant to the federal "American Rescue Plan Act of 2021", Pub.L. 117-2, as the act may be subsequently amended, to the Colorado opportunity scholarship initiative is estimated to serve at least three thousand displaced Colorado workers and will provide these workers with the skills, supports, and credentials necessary to secure good jobs, sustain a resilient state economy, and help institutions of higher education scale high-demand and highly impacted programs; and (d) These funds will be distributed to public institutions of higher education, community partners, and workforce centers across the state to provide scholarships, wraparound supports, and recruitment and retention efforts for Coloradans with some college education but no degree who have the need to reskill, upskill, or complete industry-recognized credentials due to lost or reduced employment
