ARPA Utilization Data by State

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

Provides additional discretionary funds for the communities of Chelsea, Everett, Methuen, and Randolph to support costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including direct response efforts, addressing negative economic impacts, replacing revenue lost during the pandemic, making investments in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure, as well as other eligible expenditures
Authorizing Language: The following amounts will be distributed to the communities today: Chelsea $28.5 million Everett $33.3 million Methuen $26.3 million Randolph $21 million ARPA allocated direct aid to some municipalities based on the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program formula, while assistance to other communities was allocated on a per-capita basis. The use of these two different allocation formulas created disparities in distributions among cities and towns, and Chelsea, Everett, Methuen and Randolph are the four designated hardest hit communities with disproportionately smaller levels of federal funding compared to other hardest hit communities. The Administration worked closely with key state and local stakeholders to determine the extent of the necessary additional resources given federal funding levels and local needs. These four municipalities will be able to use this funding to support costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including direct response efforts, addressing negative economic impacts, replacing revenue lost during the pandemic, making investments in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure, as well as other eligible expenditures.

Funding to continue the operation of the COVID-19 Response Accountability Office.
Authorizing Language: Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) requests $2,016,430 for FY 22 and FY 23 from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) to continue the operations of the COVID-19 Response Accountability Office. The office provides critical auditing, reporting, internal controls, and financial management functions to ensure state and local government agencies are accountable for the COVID-19 funds they receive and that Minnesota meets federal reporting requirements. The COVID-19 Response Accountability Office: Monitors COVID related state appropriations and federal funds: The office plays the lead role in monitoring and maintaining an inventory of federal funding sources related to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, including intended/allowable uses, amount of funds that Minnesota is expected to receive, any constraints on the use of those funds, and the associated documentation, reporting, and auditing requirements. Maximize the use of federal funding resources in collaboration with various federal, state, and local government officials: While the office plays different roles depending on the funding source, one of its primary functions is to track the spending proposals and their progress through the review process as well as the subsequent decisions that are made on each. Coordinate budgeting, accounting, and internal controls activities for COVID-19 related funding: Once funding has been authorized by MMB, the Governor's office, and the Legislature, the office coordinates with MMB Budget, Accounting and Internal Controls Divisions as well as state agencies to administer COVID-19 funding. Establish and maintain a system of reporting COVID-19 related expenditures and results: The office's role of ensuring that the state complies with the various reporting requirements is based on the type of funding source. For non-federal funds, agencies are expected to monitor, understand, and meet the documentation and reporting requirements of the funds directly allocated to them. For the ARP the office will play the lead role in ensuring that the state and its subrecipients meet documentation and reporting requirements.

Funds to pay for a COVID testing facility for state employees that are required to be tested weekly.
Authorizing Language: This request is to pay for a testing facility in the St. Paul area to provide weekly COVID-19 testing of state employees that are required to work on-site and are unable or unwilling to attest to being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Staff who access the workplace or provide public service outside of their homes on behalf of an agency without vaccination pose a particular risk of COVID-19 exposure to themselves, their colleagues, and to members of the public. Additionally, ongoing community transmission of the more transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19 in Minnesota, especially among unvaccinated individuals, presents a continuous risk of infection. To protect, to the extent reasonably possible, the health and safety of our employees and our customers from the direct threat resulting from the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and to members of the public, agency staff who are assigned to work at the workplace (rather than at-home telework), wish to access the workplace for more than 10 minutes, or otherwise provide agency services outside of their home must provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status. All agency staff who are assigned to work at the workplace (rather than at-home telework) or who otherwise provide agency services outside of their home and do not submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination must undergo mandatory COVID-19 testing at least weekly. The requested funding will cover the cost of administering testing to approximately 1400 employees weekly. This site will be available for state employees in the metro area. Beyond the cost of testing, other costs associated with this site include but are not limited to: additional staff support at the testing site, leasing of the testing space, and IT related costs including laptops, WAN/LAN network, and licensing. This up front funding will provide for approximately eight weeks of testing. We anticipate that many of these costs are eligible for FEMA reimbursement and MMB will be actively be seeking reimbursement as well as expedited FEMA funding for these testing costs into the future.

Funds to continue incentivizing citizens to get their COVID 19 vaccine and provide grants to vaccine providers.
Authorizing Language: This proposal will both expand the current $100 incentive program to more Minnesotans and provide grants to our vaccine partners to tailor incentives to their specific populations. Expanding the current $100 incentive program: additional funding will allow us to encourage more people to get vaccinated by covering all new first doses in a two- week period and not be limited to just the first 25,000 people. Providing grants to vaccine providers: MDH will solicit and fund proposals from our vaccination partners, including Local Public Health, COVID Community Coordinators, FQHCs and Community Clinics, Tribal Health, Health Care Systems, Shelters, Corrections, and Long-term Care providers, so they can tailor incentives to their populations. Providers may want to incent first and second doses, or may reward referrals, or may provide for more immediate rewards. Grants will be awarded as soon as September to fund activity through December 2021 with the ability to extend. Funds will be used for grants and to purchase gift cards, including administrative costs on gift cards and to award, distribute, and monitor, and report out on grants. Any unused funds will be used for future, more targeted incentives.

Funds to incentivize 12-17 year-olds to get their COVID 19 vaccine.
Authorizing Language: We face a critical juncture in the pandemic. The Delta variant is significantly more infectious, accounting for nearly all of new COVID-19 cases and leading to increased cases across the country . In Minnesota it is putting both vaccinated and unvaccinated at higher risk, surging at a time when students have returned to school and putting our youngest Minnesotans particularly at risk. While we have made significant progress in responding to the pandemic, we need to continue to do everything we can to mitigate transmission and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and deaths. Our primary prevention tool and best protection strategy is vaccination and our lowest vaccination rates (among those eligible) are in youth ages 12-17. Incentives have been exercised in Minnesota and across the country to increase vaccination and community feedback is that incentives are a way to encourage action and offset costs of lower income families, including lost wages associated with appointments, transportation, child care, etc. and create more equitable access. Based on other state learnings and community feedback, this proposal includes a two-part incentive. A cash incentive program to encourage more youth and children to go get their complete vaccine series. Data tells us how important a complete vaccine series is in level of protection. Recent research suggests that a $100 incentive could sway up to 30% of the people who are not yet vaccinated to get a shot. Our previous program, Your Shot to Summer, led to over 15,000 vaccinations and the $100 August program rewarded 76,813 people who got vaccinated - including 21,277 12-17 year olds (individuals who waited months after eligibility). In relaunching a cash incentive program, specific weeks will be announced to encourage more children and youth to get their vaccine - starting first with 12-17 and then building future campaigns after eligibility expands to younger ages. In addition to the cash incentive, the state will create a drawing for all youth and children who have completed their series. Minnesota has learned from success of other states that larger incentives specifically focused on teens garner energy and attention. MDH will facilitate drawings for prizes for children and youth who complete their vaccine series, including college scholarships in partnership with the Office of Higher Education. The funds will be used to create the college savings program and administer donated experience prizes. Early data from Ohio demonstrates 155,000 youth registered to win during its college scholarship drawing program. Funds will be used to provide cash incentives, award college scholarships up to levels of $100,000, provide small incentives based on community feedback, and cover the direct administrative and reporting costs.

Addition funds for workers compensation claims for jobs which COVID-19 is covered under.
Authorizing Language: Minnesota amended its workers' compensation laws, adding a presumption for certain occupations that COVID-19 was deemed a presumptive occupational disease and covered under workers' compensation laws for illnesses that occur prior to December 31, 2021. This request seeks additional funds that allow for payment of workers' compensation claims for the occupations that continue to be covered by this law. Occupations covered include licensed peace officers, firefighters, paramedics or emergency medical technicians, nurses or health care providers and workers, assistive employees in health care settings and corrections officers. Included in this claim are occupations with job titles that might not appear to fit the general description above. For example, in Corrections there are occupations that involve direct inmate supervision; these are considered corrections officers for purposes of applying the law. State agencies with employees covered under the COVID-19 presumption are Corrections, Human Services, Natural Resources, Public Safety and the Minnesota Veterans Homes. These funds allow Admin to pay claims directly when they meet the requirements of the law. This simplifies claim processing and limits the number of transactions required. For claims prior to July 22, 2020, state agencies continued to pay employees covered by this legislation for workers' compensation full wage continuation under the enterprise's COVID-19 Paid Leave Policy. Since July 22, 2020, when the Paid COVID-19 Leave was revised, both medical expenses paid for health care services associated with employees' COVID-19 occupational disease and wage continuation provided by workers' compensation laws will be paid in coordination with the revised COVID-19 Paid Leave Policy. In FY20, we received $33,753.22 in Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) reimbursement; in FY21, we received $1.5M in CRF reimbursement, which left an outstanding balance of approximately $625,000 in workers' compensation costs for state agencies; in FY22, we anticipate $1.7M in workers' compensation costs for state agencies; in FY23, we anticipate $850K in workers' compensation costs for state agencies. These estimates are based on actual claim experience. Due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases as a result of new variants, the cost impact for future workers' compensation presumption claims is unknown. Admin will monitor and if additional funds are required, an updated request for funds will be prepared. There will also be additional claim costs after December 31, 2024. These costs will be for long-term COVID-19 claims that will involve claim payments into the future for 10+ years.

Funds a financial aid program to award grants to students who have been impacted by COVID-19 in order to receive training and skills for a new career.
Authorizing Language: The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted Minnesota's economy. According to recent information from DEED, 786,617 Minnesotans filled for Unemployment Insurance from March 2020 to March 2021. Of those, 23% or over 180,000 Minnesotans have still not returned to the workforce. Those who have not returned to the workplace are disproportionately workers of color, low-wage workers, and workers in industries like retail, food service, and health career fields like home health aides and personal care aides. These Minnesotans may be permanently displaced from prior positions or looking to re-skill for a new career in a higher paying or high-need career field. The pandemic has also resulted in shortages of qualified workers in critical industries, including health care, machine technology, IT, agricultural and food science technicians, and other career areas. These grants will provide economic benefit as the state recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing the number of Minnesotans with the credentials and training needed to stabilize our workforce while earning a family sustaining wage. This last dollar financial aid program provides a tuition-free opportunity to attend a Minnesota public or tribal college or university to over 20,000 students who have been most impacted by COVID-19. These grants, which will be administered by the Office of Higher Education and awarded through partner colleges, will allow eligible Minnesota residents who have not yet earned a bachelor's degree and who are in an approved program access to the education and training needed to re-skill/re-launch their careers into one of Minnesota's high-need career areas. These grants will benefit a wide range of Minnesotans from all regions of the state and our communities of color. This grant is an effective, equity-centered strategy to increase the prosperity and economic vitality for Minnesotans statewide, especially Minnesotans of color. Implementation of this program will begin in August 2021, with first student awards applied in spring 2022. Award sizes will range from $100- $15,400 per academic year, depending on student need, cost of attendance, and availability of other aid. Awards will be renewable for up to five semesters, including summers, to provide extended financial aid support to those who have been most impacted by COVID-19.

Funding to supports grants in two early learning programs -- the ParentChild+ and Reach Out and Read programs.
Authorizing Language: The Early Learning Grant (ParentChild+ and Reach Out and Read) will provide $1.5 million in funding to support two early learning programs that support early language, communication and literacy skills. The Reach Out and Read program partners with doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals to incorporate literacy support into regular well-child visits. From the 6-month checkup through age five, medical providers give children developmentally appropriate books and give parents guidance and encouragement on reading with their children. The program focuses on reaching children in low income communities. ParentChild + is an intensive home visiting program for families with children ages 2-4, provided at no cost to the families. It helps children from underserved communities bridge the opportunity gap and prepare them for success in school by bringing highly trained Early Learning Specialists (ELSs) into the families' homes for twice-weekly visits over a two-year period. Additionally, funding will support a the implementation of the ParentChild+ Family Child Care (FCC) Model which provides comparable services to family child care providers and allows a broader community reach. Both Parent Child+ programs serve a racially diverse population, and all families are at or below 200% of the 2020 Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG), with 70% at or below 100% of the guidelines and 30% between 100%-200% FPG. This request is for $150,000 to Reach Out and Read, $1,300,000 to ParentChild+ and up to $50,000 for grant admin.

Funding for the Minnesota Zoo's recovery from the impact of the pandemic.
Authorizing Language: An authorization of $11,495,000 is requested to support the Minnesota Zoo's recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This appropriation was agreed to by Governor Walz and legislative leaders in creating a budget framework for the FY 2022-23 biennium. To help limit the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state, the Minnesota Zoo closed its doors to the public for four months in the spring and summer of 2020, and then for another four weeks beginning in November 2020. COVID-driven capacity limits and safety measures dramatically reduced daily admissions; forced the cancellation of events, education programs, and facility rentals; and caused the Zoo's membership base to decline from 41,000 to 28,000 households. Revenues from admissions, membership, and programming are critically important, typically supporting two-thirds of the Zoo's annual operating budget. To manage this significant loss in revenue, the Zoo took immediate and drastic action to reduce expenses, including: * laying off 48 staff members and impacting 125 total positions by eliminating or reducing hours for many intermittent and seasonal positions * canceling or delaying major projects and significantly cutting back on infrastructure investments, repairs, and maintenance; and * reducing hours of operation, eliminating shows and animal encounters, and canceling all summer camps and education programming including the popular Zoomobile program.

The collective allocation will provide $500,000 each to the five EPC members in Greater Minnesota as well as Generation Next, $250,000 each to Minneapolis Northside Achievement Zone and St. Paul Promise Neighborhood, and $500,000 in competitive grant opportunities (up to $100,000 each) for other partnership program locations not named for the purpose of initial planning and development. The EPC is a statewide network of locally-controlled, data-driven public-private partnerships focused on eliminating Minnesota's opportunity gaps, which are among the worst in the nation. The eight members of the EPC include Austin Aspires, Rochester's Cradle 2 Career, Every Hand Joined in Red Wing, Generation Next, Northfield Promise, Minneapolis' Northside Achievement Zone, United Way of Central Minnesota in the St. Cloud area, and the Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood. Collectively, the EPC serves more than 120,000 Minnesota children annually. Additional communities have expressed interest in developing and establishing education partnerships. During the last year the EPC served their communities through coordinated the distribution of hundreds devices and Wi-Fi access to students for distance learning, thousands of boxes of food for families, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in emergency rental relief. The legislatively guaranteed funding for Greater Minnesota EPC members ended in fiscal year 2021, and despite the innovative work of this past year, families across the state continue to struggle. Without additional funding Greater Minnesota communities served by the EPC in particular will struggle. This request will fund the five EPC members in Greater Minnesota (Austin Aspires, Rochester's Cradle 2 Career, Every Hand Joined in Red Wing, Northfield Promise, and United Way of Central Minnesota in the St. Cloud Area) and Generation Next so they can maintain the coordination of services they have been providing, as well as increase coordinated services and develop deeper partnerships with more families, will increase services in Minneapolis and St. Paul, and will provide opportunities for more partnerships statewide.

Funds for staff and costs related to reducing the case backlog that currently exists under the Board of Public Defense.
Authorizing Language: The Board of Public Defense is requesting $3.945 million to hire contract attorneys to address the significant case backlog that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic and to meet the speedy trial demands of the public defender clients. In February of 2021, The Minnesota Judicial Council reported that between March 19, 2020 and January 31st, 2021 there were over 14,000+ felony and gross misdemeanor cases pending due to the courts having to shut down or reduce services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Court has in the past and intends to hire retired judges to staff civil and criminal calendars and are at the same time address the backlog of cases. This will free up existing judges to conduct trials and contested hearings. The BOPD simply does not have the attorneys to staff these calendars while these trials and contested hearings will be going on. The BOPD is operating with approximately 75% of the Assistant Public Defender staff called for by the state’s Weighted Caseload Standards. In June of 2021, the Judicial Council reported a “judge need” of 38,679 hours to resolve the backlog of major criminal cases. Public defenders represent 85-90% of clients in serious criminal cases. Taking the Court’s estimated hours, assuming 85% of those hours would be related to public defender cases and including an additional hour of out of court time need to prepare for the cases, this would mean an additional need for 65,754 hours of attorney time to address this backlog. The current rate for contractors is $60 per hour, which equates to $3,945,000.

Funds for staff and costs related to reducing the case backlog that currently exists within the state courts.
Authorizing Language: The Minnesota Judicial Branch is requesting $9.961 million to help our courts with staffing and related costs needed to reduce the significant case backlog that has resulted from the COVID-l9 pandemic. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Minnesota Judicial Branch has taken unprecedented steps to protect the health and wellbeing of court users and personnel, while maintaining access to justice. These steps included temporarily limiting physical access to the state's courthouses, delaying trials, and conducting most court hearings in on-line courtrooms. As a result of these steps, the case backlog in Minnesota's district courts has grown significantly since the start of the pandemic. It is estimated that it will take approximately 41,946 hours of judicial officer work time to address the current pandemic-related backlog. Major Criminal (more complicated) cases make up a majority (38,679) of our current backlog. Costs are calculated as follows: Major Criminal Case Hours (38,679) multiplied by hourly rate of judicial unit (Judicial Officer, Court Reporter, Law Clerk, and two Court Operations Associates) of $257.55. This requested funding would allow the Judicial Branch to leverage the expertise of senior (retired) judicial officers and temporary Referees to begin addressing this substantial backlog, cover other related staffing needs and supporting costs. As you know, on June 23, 2021, the U.S. Treasury updated its guidance on ARPA/Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. The Treasury's FAQ now specifically cites case backlogs as an eligible use.

Funding for homeless shelter programs and services eligible under the Emergency Services Program.
Authorizing Language: This request is for funds for programs, settings and services eligible under the Emergency Services Program (ESP) to help them operate safely over the long-term while preventing transmission of COVID-19. These awards will prioritize investments that help congregate shelter settings prevent transmission of infectious diseases, including physical modifications to spaces to reduce transmission risks or increase physical separation of shelter guests, changes to ventilation or air filtration systems, modifications for traffic flow especially in high-traffic areas, or creation/acquisition of new shelter space that has been designed to operate effectively in the context of an infectious disease. Demand for these resources will significantly exceed this request; as such, we will prioritize this funding for acquisition and renovation projects that minimize COVID risks in congregate settings and can be completed most quickly. Additional funding requests (including proposals for legislative consideration) are anticipated to meet emerging and intermediate-term needs for shelters as they continue to respond and recover from the pandemic. DHS will follow recommendations from the MMB COVID Response Accountability Office to comply with requirements for spending federal Fiscal Recovery Funds (FRF) allocated to states as part of the American Rescue Plan Act. Previous funding the Department received through the Coronavirus Relief Fund has not been subject to any audit findings. Without these investments, it is likely that Minnesota's shelter system will remain in a cycle of continuous crisis as settings contend with outbreaks of current or future infectious diseases that compromise their ability to operate effectively. To the greatest practical extent possible, these investments will be structured to leverage investments from other levels of government. All services and recipients would be eligible per the Emergency Services Program (MS 256E.36).

Funding to create and run a homeless shelter emergency response team and provide grants to shelters for operations and upgrades.
Authorizing Language: Among people who contract COVID-19, people experiencing homelessness residing in shelters are four and a half times more likely to end up hospitalized and three times more likely to require intensive care. People living outside are nine times more likely to be hospitalized and eight times more likely to require intensive care. These disparities are the results of the high prevalence of underlying health conditions and vulnerability, coupled with living in settings that heighten the risks of exposure and make prevention or mitigation efforts difficult or impossible. Minnesota faces a dual challenge: responding immediately to high-risk congregate settings and better equipping those settings for short and longer-term safe operations in the midst of infectious diseases (in the next few months and years). The At Risk Populations work group, the Interagency Council on Homelessness (ICH), and DHS propose a two-part allocation of Fiscal Recovery Funds to address these needs. Creation of a homeless shelter emergency response team at DHS to provide the overall leadership for Minnesota's homeless shelter COVID-19 response. Specific guidance for emergency response will take place through an identified inter-disciplinary and organizationally flexible team including staff from the ICH, MDH, DPS, MN Housing and DHS. Activities include communication, coordination and mobilization of resources to address mitigation, response, and recovery. Approximately $10 million of the total request would cover targeted, immediate response activities to mitigate or prevent outbreaks in congregate settings serving people experiencing homelessness, including survivors of domestic violence. These funds will cover additional staffing and hazard pay to keep shelters operating with the needed complement of personnel (who may need to be replaced or supplemented as staff contract COVID or must quarantine); room leasing costs to establish additional shelter capacity to de-concentrate shelters or create protective or isolation options for people experiencing homelessness (such as hotel rooms where people exposed, at high risk, or who have tested positive can reside), and other costs for supplies needed to sustain congregate shelter operations (e.g., air filtration, PPE, or food for people residing in isolation space). Once approved, these funds would be deployed through a rapid request process initiated by organizations operating congregate shelters or as directed by the Department of Health. All services and recipients would be eligible through the Emergency Services Program (ESP) MS 256E.36. Grantees would be permitted to use up to 1 percent of grant funding for administrative costs. Additional funding will be needed for the recovery phase for shelter modifications for traffic flow especially in high-traffic areas, or creating of new shelter space that has been designed to operate effectively for staff and guests in the context of an infectious disease. This request is being targeted to the immediate, crisis needs congregate shelter settings are faced with today.

Funds grants for school districts and charter schools to provide secondary transition services to students with disabilities.
Authorizing Language: The expand/add vocational or life skills programming will provide $1.0 million in funding for grants to school districts and charter schools for providing secondary transition services to students with disabilities age 18 to 21 who lost instructional time in secondary transition programs during the pandemic (2020-2021). The teaching of vocational skills and life skills is intended to prepare a student with a disability for success after secondary education. Through vocational skills training, students will learn how to prepare for a job, find a job, apply for a job and excel at a job. Life skills programs for students with disabilities prepare students to participate as fully as possible in their schools and communities, live as independently as possible, self advocate and make their own choices, and attain quality of life. This funding will support schools in addressing the needs of students receiving special education services who are preparing to graduate and transition into the workforce or community who currently do not have access and whose services have been limited due to COVID-19. These funds will be utilized by schools in developing and/or expanding vocational and life skills programs in their schools. One example is implementation of Project SEARCH internship sites for students with developmental cognitive disabilities in a business. The uses of the funds by school districts and charter schools may include one or more of the following: a. effective practices for improved social inclusion of students with disabilities with student peers, school and community b. secondary transition services for students with disabilities who exited special education in the 2020-21 school year owing to age; c. internet capacity for special education transition programs, including access and licensing for the Minnesota Career Information System (MCIS), MyVault, etc.; or d. professional development and implementation of effective practices for improving life skills, vocational skills, and improved postsecondary outcomes for students with disabilities, including but not limited to Project SEARCH and Employment Capacity Building Cohort (ECBC) participation and implementation.

Authorizing Language: The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (“State”) requests $15 million to address immediate needs for community violence intervention, as well as to fund Survivor Support and Prevention grants and Innovation in Community Safety grants. An additional $1.8 million is requested for administration of these funds by the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), including community engagement, technical assistance, grant administration, and reporting. This funding will fill critical gaps in Minnesota's public safety response as the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color, including higher levels of unemployment, positive case rates, and deaths. The multi-layered stress of the pandemic is directly impacting the rise in crime, and the COVID-19 relief bills Congress passed have identified public safety as an important issue in the response to the pandemic.

Funding to support the operations and implementation of the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance program.
Authorizing Language: Minnesota Housing is requesting $7 million to support implementation and operations of COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance, also known as RentHelpMN. Minnesota Housing has received two federal rounds of this new, federal Emergency Rental Assistance including $300 million at the end of December 2020 (ERA1) and $228 million in March's American Rescue Plan (ERA2). ERA1 limited implementation and operating spending to 10% of the award, $30 million. The federal rules require that the administrative budgets be segregated such that only ERA1 administrative contracts can be used in distributing ERA1 resources. The $30 million has been fully obligated in the following categories: 1) Twin Cities United Way 211, with a staff of over 40 specialists that provide access to information and the application system; 2) Field Partners for outreach and application navigation, 28 organizations with staff members; 3) Processing and payment contractor with over 450 staff members working the applications, quality assurance, finance, customer service calls to work through landlord and applicant questions, project management and staffing management; 4) Technology, including a new, statewide application system; 5) Staff at Minnesota Housing including 7 current employees. Besides the initial start-up costs associated with the single largest program ever administered by the agency, most spending is on the people required to process the nearly 50,000 applications that have been received since opening in late April. The program continues to receive around 250 applications per day. Initial projections assumed approximately 100 staff would be needed to process applications, but the combination of demand and higher-touch personal service needed to effectively process claims has meant that more than 450 processor staff members are necessary to assist renters and landlords at scale. To respond to processing and customer service needs, staff at the processing center have increased significantly over the previous months leading to increased payment processing. Assistance payments for rent and utilities for renters have increased from $18 million in August to $43 million in September. As of October 13, over $50 million has been paid in October. This increased pace of payments spending is expected to continue as application volume remains strong. Without additional funding, staffing levels will be reduced impacting payment speeds to property owners. Minnesota Housing cannot increase the processing contract to authorize continued work on the program without the budget authority to do so. With the additional resources, total administration costs are anticipated to be 12% for ERA1 which is lower than up to 15% allowed for ERA2. There are also less program dollars to distribute in ERA2. The additional $7 million will be budgeted in the following ways and primarily to continue increased processing and customer service staff: 1) Maintain processor staffing levels at over 450 people until ERA1 is fully expended and 2) Continue the services in the budget without impacting 211 call-center support, and Field Partner outreaching and navigation. On-going Field Partner work, which is critical to the program operations, can be supported with ERA2 funding.

Funding to replace lost revenue for school districts and charter schools due to the decline in enrollment during 2020-21.
Authorizing Language: The Pandemic Enrollment Loss proposal will provide $29.191 million in additional declining enrollment revenue for districts and charter schools to account for lost revenue due to enrollment losses for the 2020-2021 school year. Funds will support new, expanded, or enhanced early learning services, and evidenced-based practices addressing academic or student mental health needs. In response to changing learning models offered by schools and safety concerns due to the pandemic, many school districts and charter schools experienced large enrollment losses in the 2020-2021 school year as families chose nonpublic and home school options and delayed kindergarten starts. This created a financial hardship for schools as districts anticipated less revenue than they had budgeted for. This ultimately affected students who have remained, since education services and personnel may have been reduced or offered less frequently to make up for budget losses. Pandemic Enrollment Loss was part of the Governor's recommended budget to provide additional fiscal year 2021 funding for school districts, charter schools, and tribal contract schools. That proposal would have increased the percentage of the formula allowance used to calculate declining enrollment revenue from 28 to 48.5 percent of the basic formula allowance for fiscal year 2021, which in turn would have increased the declining enrollment allowance by $1,346.24 per declining pupil, from $1,838.76 to $3,185.00. The additional state aid would have supported general operations of schools and soften the impact of this unanticipated enrollment loss on school budgets. This federally funded Pandemic Enrollment Loss proposal would provide a similar increase at 20.5 percent of the basic formula allowance for the enrollment loss last year. The funding would support services for students that may have been foregone last year due to the budget losses in accordance with federal guidance on addressing education disparities and mitigating the impacts of the pandemic, including learning loss.

Funding for the Department of Administration to complete and implement a Facilities Strategic Plan for state facilities.
Authorizing Language: In March 2020, the state workforce began teleworking en masse in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. As a result, agencies are considering what their physical workspaces will look like in the future by implementing best practices for a safe work environment and deciding to reduce, consolidate, or relocate their offices in response to changing ratios of on-site and remote work. This request is for Department of Administration (Admin) - on behalf of the entire enterprise - for $4 million to complete and implement a comprehensive Facilities Strategic Plan for agency space consolidation, reconfiguration and relocation. Funds will cover costs for planning, space reconfiguration, and relocation. Providing funds for agencies to downsize and reconfigure their space will allow flexibility to make the best choices for the state and the citizens they serve. This investment will allow the state to avoid costs as a way to keep spending down while providing the services that Minnesotans expect.

Funds to support reinvestment and recovery of operations at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
Authorizing Language: The Science Museum of Minnesota respectfully requests $3.798 million dollars in American Rescue Plan funding to support the institution's reinvestment in human capital and to aid in the recovery of its general operations and programming, which have been significantly impacted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Science Museum of Minnesota projects an operating loss of $15 million for the period covering March 2020 to March 2022. This loss is being realized despite significant cost-saving measures, which include the permanent loss of 158 of the Museum's 499 employees. FY22 revenue continues to be negatively impacted by the ongoing effects of the pandemic, with projected earned-revenue running 30% below pre-pandemic levels (FY19). The current surge in positive cases due to the Delta variant is only exacerbating this projected shortfall and the museum's ability to return to full operational capacity. With the support of the American Rescue Plan funding, the Science Museum seeks to add staff roles in the coming fiscal year, across all facets of the institution, to bolster its operational, scientific, and programming capacity. As public health conditions improve and visitor confidence returns, the Museum is poised to serve as an economic driver, spurring increased tourism and visitation to our State and region. The Museum will regrow its capacity to serve the citizens and students of Minnesota as a leading provider of STEM education outreach and field trip programming, inspiring young minds and helping to develop Minnesota's next-generation STEM workforce.
