Treasury Issues Guidance for Non-Entitlement Units of Government

On May 25, the Treasury Department released guidance for Non-Entitlement Units (NEU) of governments regarding funds received from the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. As defined in section 603(g)(5) of the Social Security Act, NEUs are jurisdictions typically serving less than 50,000 constituents. The guidance outlines the step-by-step process required of states to receive funds, qualifications for identifying NEUs, allocation calculations and more.
