COVID-19 Federal Funds Office

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F) is responsible for maximizing federal revenue and minimizing compliance risks associated with federal grants in the Commonwealth.

Overview of COVID-19 Federal Funds

About COVID-19 Related Federal Funds

The Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F) provides information about COVID-19 related federal funds provided to the Commonwealth, including: 

  • Federal funds provided to the Commonwealth in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, such as the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CvRF) and the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund (CSFRF); 

  • Federal funds distributed to municipalities and school districts; and

  • Compliance for federal funds, including compliance resources for municipalities and state agencies.

As the federal government issues guidance and as the priorities change, A&F adapts its strategy for allocating funds in order to maximize the amount of federal funds available to the Commonwealth. Some of the work associated with maximizing federal revenue happens retrospectively: an expense is incurred and allocated to an available state or federal funding source, but it may be reallocated later if a more appropriate funding source is identified. Spending may be reallocated between different federal funding sources, or between federal sources and state sources. Factors that A&F considers in matching spending with funding sources include eligibility rules, spending deadlines, the availability of new funding sources, and compliance risks.
