States, cities, and counties with more than 250,000 people must publish annual Performance Plan Recovery Reports on how they will use their SLFRF. In addition, all states, localities, tribal governments and territories must submit Project and Expenditure Reports detailing the projects being funded with SLFRF and the progress implementing them. You can use the Treasury Department database of reports to figure out which projects are being supported and determine how much funding is still available
