ARPA Subrecipient Page
Dear ARPA Subrecipient,
Congratulations to your organization on receiving funding through Athens-Clarke County’s allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. The ACCGov Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) welcomes your partnership in achieving our community’s shared goals.
The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSLFRF) from the United States Treasury, aims to provide state, local, and Tribal governments with the resources needed to respond to the pandemic and its economic effects and to build a stronger, more equitable economy during the recovery, principally for people with low and moderate income.
As a subrecipient, your organization must be mindful of adhering to federal, state, and local regulations. Throughout the year, you will be required to submit reports on your financial and program performance. This manual is intended to be a supportive resource to allow you to be successful in carrying out your ARPA-funded projects and the related requirements; however, we also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the resources referenced in this manual.
HCD staff are available to support you throughout the grant cycle. We also welcome success stories and photos that illuminate your organization’s use of ARPA funds to enhance equity, achieve your goals, and support members of our community. Thank you for your contributions to Athens-Clarke County!

2024 ARPA Subrecipient Guide
This ARPA Policies and Procedures Manual is intended as a guide, not as a substitute for thorough knowledge of state and federal laws and regulations referenced in this manual. In the event of any discrepancy, federal regulations will prevail.
The financial, accounting, internal control, and reporting principles presented in this manual are basic, and are not intended to replace acceptable existing procedures being used by your agency. Instead, these fundamental requirements represent minimum procedures and controls that must be embodied within your accounting, internal control, and financial reporting system as required by Federal regulations and ACCGov policies.
Your contract with ACCGov will contain a comprehensive statement of the goals, objectives, and specific services referred to as a “scope of work” to be provided by your agency. The contract will specify the reports and documentation required for verification of contract compliance. This manual is meant to assist your agency in complying with the provisions of your contract with ACCGov, but should not be used in lieu of reading the articles of the contract. Should there be any disagreement between your contract and this manual, the provisions contained within the contract will always take precedence. Unless otherwise specified, HCD shall have the authority to represent ACCGov regarding the terms and conditions of your contract.
