Business and Social Service Organizations Can Apply for CARES Act Funding

 Step 1 of 1

Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) from the United States Treasury have been distributed to the State and may be used for the limited purposes set forth in section 601(a) of the Social Security Act, as added by section 5001 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)

The State has made funds available to local governments to assist in Government expenses incurred as well as local business’ expenses incurred as a direct result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Guidance from the federal government requires that reimbursement for expenditures be directly related to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Examples of approved expenses for reimbursement:

  • Cleaning or disinfection supplies
  • Personal protection equipment
  • Costs incurred to clean a facility due to COVID-19 - positive employees – that has required your business to shut down albeit temporarily
  • Costs associated with business model change. (For example: dine in only restaurant to curbside and/or take out.)

ALL requests for reimbursement must include:

  • Dated and detailed receipt
  • Explanation of item on receipt (Masks?  Disinfectants?)
  • Verification of payment
  • Written explanation of how this expense relates directly to COVID-19
  •  A W9 form

Please check our website regularly regarding the CARES Act funding.  We are currently starting with allowing the request for up to $20,000 in reimbursement as we do not know the breadth of the requests and or need within our community. If it is determined we have sufficient funds available to allow for additional reimbursements we will do so.  SO- CHECK our website and the Commissioners meetings for updates.
