Guide to Advancing Sustainability with American Rescue Plan Funds

This brief outlines possible infrastructure investment projects that could qualify for funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The Treasury Interim final rule makes clear that infrastructure projects with a relationship to public health or economic resilience post-pandemic qualify under ARP. Additionally, any activity that could be eligible for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) and Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) qualifies. To help state and local governments consider these infrastructure investments, below we provide, for several potential project types: (1) a description of the project type, (2) a representative project to illustrate the nature and benefits of the project type (but not conducted with ARP funds); and (3) identification of the specific funding authority in the Treasury Interim final rule.
