2021-22 Local Government Grants

Local Government Recovery and Rebuilding Direct Appropriation Grants

Gov. Bill Lee and the General Assembly developed the 2021-22 Local Government Grant program for Tennessee counties and cities/towns in the recovery effort of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Counties and municipalities are not required to file a plan for the use of the grant funds. Local jurisdictions were sent a direct appropriation letter from the Department of Finance and Administration ; click here to view or download a copy of the letter of agreement that must be returned.

Funding made available through the direct appropriation grants are one-time funding and are to be used on one-time expenses.
