The Office of the Comptroller has issued accounting guidance for revenue and grants received as the result of the American Rescue Plan Act. Departments will continue to follow the current grant set-up process for new ARPA-related grants, but they must include the code ARPA in the subject line of email correspondence with CTR and the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (ANF).

Departments that receive an ARPA-related award increase to an existing grant should request a new appropriation from ANF for the ARPA-related award and create a Major Program and Program for the ARPA-related portion of the award.
