Delaware’s Office of the State Treasurer is responsible for distributing ARPA funding to local governments throughout Delaware. State Treasurer Colleen C. Davis, as the custodian of Delaware funds, receives the allocation for NEUs in two tranches (portions) and make disbursements in accordance with ARPA.
As of Thursday, June 24, 2021, OST successfully remitted initial ARPA payments to all 55 of the State’s non-entitlement units of local government (“NEUs”).
