Allowable Uses of the CSLFRF
Regardless of whether funds were paid through the CLFRF or the CSFRF, the ARPA requires that the payments from the Fund only be used to cover expenses that:
(1) Respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts;
(2) Respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to such eligible workers of the recipient, or by providing grants to eligible employers that have eligible workers who performed essential work;
(3) For the provision of government services, to the extent of the reduction in revenue of such recipient due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year of the recipient prior to the emergency; or
(4) To make necessary investments in water, sewer or broadband infrastructure.
