Registration Open for LOC Webinar on State ARPA Funded Projects

The LOC will be hosting a webinar with the Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) and Business Oregon on January 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Our state partners will provide information on how local governments will access resources for certain projects the Legislature funded with the state’s share of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) as outlined in HB 5006, the 2021 session’s Christmas Tree bill.  

Chief administrative officers for cities with identified projects should have received an email invitation last week from the LOC. The projects are also identified in this budget report, and cities can search for their city name by using CTRL+F. 

The webinar will explain projects in two categories:

  • $240 million in ARPA grants by state legislative districts that will be administered by DAS (see pages 26 to 38 for a list of projects); and
  • Nearly $276 million for drinking water, storm water, and sanitary sewer projects that will be administered by Business Oregon (see pages 43 to 45 for list of projects).    

The webinar will also cover timing, process, possible pitfalls, reporting requirements, and recipient questions.  

Register now

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to join the webinar.  The webinar will be recorded and posted on the LOC website.
