MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Wisconsin Department of Revenue has stated that Wisconsin municipalities with populations under 50,000 can receive Coronavirus funding through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

The funding is being allocated from Local Government Recovery Funds (LFRF) and will be available for municipalities who qualify as non-entitlement units (NEUs). These units typically include Wisconsin towns, villages and cities with a population under 50,000.

The DOR states the funds will be given over the course of two payments, with 50 percent distributed by the end of June and the remaining portion sent out in 2022.

All NEUs who wish to apply must do so electronically and before the deadline on June 18.

Municipalities can apply on the DOR’s ARPA – Local Fiscal Recovery Funds webpage and the full list of uses for the ARPA funds can be found on the U.S. Department of Treasury’s frequently asked questions page.
