​​​​​​​American Rescue Plan Act - State Fiscal Recovery Fund

​The coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) program, a part of the American Rescue Plan​ (ARPA), delivers $350 billion to state, local, and Tribal governments across the country to support their response to and recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency. The U.S. Treasury awarded approximately $6.4 billion in total to the state of Oregon. 

The COVID Fiscal Relief Team (CFRT) was created by the Oregon Legislature to manage $2.6 billion of the ARPA State Fiscal Recovery Funds (SFRF) for statewide priorities and targeted projects in communities across the state. As directed by the Oregon Legislature, CFRT is partnering with 18 Oregon state agencies and directly managing around 300 projects that collectively impact every legislative district in the state.

Overview 

All communities in Oregon have felt the economic impacts of COVID-19. During the 2021 Session $240 million of CSFRF funding was allocated by the Governor to members of the legislature to direct how it would be used in their districts. Each state senator was allocated $4 million, and each representative allocated $2 million. The Legislature allowed each specific region to identify the priority investments within their jurisdiction. These priorities were reported to their respective legislative representatives and then approved as a total package. The Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) was directed to manage these projects as part of the $2.6 billion ARPA CSFRF award to the state of Oregon.

Legislation

The funding was passed in HB 5006 Section 74:  HB5006 (oregonlegislature.gov)

SECTION 74. Notwithstanding any other law limiting expenditures, the amount of $240,000,000 is established for the biennium beginning July 1, 2021, as the maximum limit for payment of expenses by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services from American Rescue Plan Act Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund moneys received by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, for the purpose of allocating $4,000,000 to each member of the Senate and $2,000,000 to each member of the House of Representatives to provide grants to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and its economic impacts.
