Reporting Requirements for ARPA

For federal relief funds authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) (HR 1319) and awarded during the 88th Legislature, the Comptroller established Appropriation 21319 for all revenue and expenditure activity relating to these funds. Contact your appropriation control officer to request activation of Appropriation 21319.

See Coronavirus Relief of 2020 Federal Funding Accounting Policy for the State of Texas (FPP A.048) for more information.

Direct Deposit

Agencies should encourage their payees to sign up for direct deposit to speed the delivery of their payments and avoid lost or stolen warrants. Agencies may provide their payees the Comptroller’s Direct Deposit Authorization Form or their internal form. For questions about the direct deposit process, see Direct Deposit.

Agencies should also encourage their payees to track their state payments via the Comptroller’s Search State Payments Issued (SSPI) website. SSPI video tutorials are available at the Comptroller’s Video Library. SSPI allows the payees to sign up for an Advance Payment Notification which generates an automated email to the payee the day after a warrant or direct deposit payment is issued by your agency.

Contact Payment Services for questions.
