CARES Act funding is distributed to local governments to provide support and assistance within the community. Once received, individual counties determine the specific programs for funding.
Our Office does not process applications for CARES Act money but rather acts in the role of chief financial officer and treasurer in distributing the funds for approved applications submitted directly through the County. Payments for approved applications submitted through a County partner will come from that partner agency.
