State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF)
The nine-person committee was chartered by City Council to determine the allocation of $8.46 million in Federal funding from the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. The SLFRF committee includes three citizens who reside within the Twin Falls city limits, three members from City committees, and three members from Twin Falls City Council. The SLFRF Committee will review projects submitted by the public and recommend select projects to City Council for approval. The Committee meets twice a month in a public forum that will be recorded and live streamed at TFID.ORG
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 projects should provide programs or services that support the mission and vision of the City and benefit the residents of Twin Falls; all projects should be directly linked to the City of Twin Falls' Strategic Plan.
