For those agencies receiving grants under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 (HR 1319) the State of Arizona Accounting Manual (SAAM) policies Topic 70 Grants Section 05 eCivis and AFIS and Topic 70 Grants Section 65 Cost Structures for Grants still apply. All grants shall be established in eCivis and cost structures created in AFIS. For the cost structures created in AFIS the appropriate Major Program Category and Program Category must be associated to these ARPA grants to ensure proper reporting.
If the grant is being received directly from the Federal Government under the ARPA the Major Program Category and Program Category 18 should be used. If the grant is being received from another state agency under the ARPA the Major Program Category and Program Category 19 should be used. Remember to attach the CFDA at the appropriate level within the cost structure. The reporting code COVID must still be used in accordance with SAAM policy Topic 80 Miscellaneous Section 33 Tracking Coronavirus-related Expenditures.
