The City of Twin Falls State and local Fiscal Recovery Fund Committee is now accepting applications to determine the allocation of $8.46 million in federal funding from the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF). More information about qualifying SLFRF Projects and applications to submit projects are available online at TFID.ORG until 12 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11.
In response to the Covid-19 public health emergency, the Federal Government provided governments across the country with resources to fight the pandemic through the American Rescue Plan Act that was signed into law on March 2021. Among other ARPA provisions, the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund committed $350 billion to state and local governments across the country to support response and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Twin Falls was allocated $8,465,111 — allocations to state and local governments were determined by population — with a requirement that all funds be committed by December 2024 and expended by December 2026.
The nine-person SLFRF committee provides representation for interests within the City of Twin Falls who include three residents of the City of Twin Falls, three members from City committees, and three members from City Council that includes the Mayor. The committee will review and recommend projects to allocate SLFRF funds that further the City’s Strategic Plan and will also be a communication conduit for community members and city administration.
Residents living within the Twin Falls city limits may submit an application for an SLFRF project by 12 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 at TFID.ORG
