CARES Act Funding

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was written to address COVID-19 impacts on four different groups in our communities: families, small businesses, industries, and state/local governments. The State of California received an allocation of $15.32 billion in CARES funds for state and local governments, and Shasta County’s allocation was $18,153,328. Here is the resolution and spending plan.

This is how the money has been spent:
