    CARES Act Funding

    Tarrant County has received funds through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Aid, also known as CARES Act. The CARES Act established the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund, which will be used to assist states and local governments impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The U.S. Department of the Treasury issued the money to states and certain local governments. The amount issued to each entity is based upon the population as provided in the CARES act. The funds can only be used to cover costs that:

    • are necessary expenditures incurred due to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease 2019
    • were not accounted for in the budget most recently approved as of March 27, 2020
    • were incurred during the period that begins on March 1, 2020, and ends on December 30, 2020

    U.S Treasury guidance provides that eligible expenditures may include expenditures related to the provision of grants to small businesses to reimburse the costs of business interruption caused by required closures due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
