INDICATING USES OF FUNDS

Tribal governments should not submit a separate Grant Plan or Program Plan.

To assist states, territories, and freely associated states in preparing to submit the Grant Plan and any Program Plans, Treasury has provided a Sample Grant Plan PDF showing the information that is required on the Treasury Submission Portal. Grant Plans will not be accepted via email.

Program Plan

States, territories, and freely associated states must also submit at least one Program Plan indicating the proposed use of funds. Program Plans must be uploaded and submitted via the Treasury Submission Portal. Program Plans will not be accepted via email.
