CARES Act Funding for City and County Governments
 
Gov. Andy Beshear announced a $300 million award to city and county governments as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which established the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to reimburse local governments for expenses incurred in response to the public health emergency caused by the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

These funds will be administered by the Department for Local Government (DLG) and can be used for reimbursements only to eligible cities and counties for COVID-19 related expenses incurred from March 1, 2020 to December 30, 2020.

For more information and guidance on eligible reimbursement expenses from the CRF, read Guidance and Frequently Asked Questions.

To apply for reimbursement, eligible local governments must complete an application with expense documentation.
