The MAS office has received multiple calls inquiring about a “form” counties will need to fill out to in order to receive funding from the U.S. Treasury Department as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. MAS has confirmed with the National Association of Counties (NACo) that the U.S. Treasury Department is developing a form that will be a required component of the application, but that form has not yet been published.
