Local Government Technical Assistance Program
The State of Tennessee recognized that the unprecedented Coronavirus Recovery Funds may present new challenges for local governments. To address those challenges, the state launched an education, training and support program for local governments without federal grant experience. The Local Government Technical Assistance Program provides in-depth training on record-keeping, reporting and compliance with federal guidelines. It also provides the framework for local government to develop their own annual plans for American Rescue Plan Fiscal Recovery Funds and solicit additional guidance on those plans from the State of Tennessee.
The Local Government Technical Assistance Program is open to all Tennessee counties, metropolitan cities, and NEUs.
Assistance consists of:
- Training program/webinar series over the course of ten weeks
- Eligibility review of annual spend plans
- Ongoing communication via state FRF website and monthly newsletter
