a. Definitions. For purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

COVID-19. The term “COVID-19” means the 2019 novel coronavirus or 2019-nCoV.

COVID-19 expenditure. The term “COVID-19 expenditure” means any expense or capital expenditure by a city agency for services, goods or materials, programs or construction paid for, in whole or in part, with any COVID-19 funds, provided that such term shall only include personnel expenditures that are tracked as such for reimbursement.

COVID-19 funds. The term “COVID-19 funds” means any federal, state or local funds allocated to or expended by any city agency to provide assistance for responding to COVID-19, including, but not limited to, preventing the spread among the population, containing or treating COVID-19 or mitigating the direct or indirect medical, physical or economic effects of COVID-19. In the case of federal COVID-19 funds, these shall include, but not be limited to, funds appropriated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021, also known as CRRSA, The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also known as ARPA, or any subsequent federal legislation that allocates funds in response to COVID-19.

Recipient. The term “recipient” means any person or entity, including any individual, sole proprietorship, public authority, partnership, association, joint venture, limited liability company, corporation or any other form of doing business, awarded COVID-19 funds.

§2. Paragraph 1 of subdivision b of section 6-144 of the administrative code of the city of New York, is amended to read as follows:

b. 1. The mayor shall establish and maintain a public online searchable and interactive database on the website of the city that shall include summaries of the administration of COVID-19 funds as set forth in this section. The data included in such database shall be available in a format that permits automated processing and is downloadable, and shall be available without any registration requirement, license requirement or restrictions on their use, provided that the city may require a third party providing to the public any data from such database, or any application utilizing such data, to explicitly identify the source and version of the data, and a description of any modifications made to such data. The database shall include but not be limited to the following information, which shall, to the extent practicable, be disaggregated by federal, state and local COVID-19 funds, and, for federal funds, by the source of such funds, including, where identifiable, the specific act of congress appropriating such funds:
