WASHINGTON — The Kansas State Finance Council approved a plan to distribute $400 million in federal resources for COVID-19 to Kansas counties, allowing each county to use the funding to tackle specific challenges and needs. Congress passed the CARES Act to provide relief and help support local governments with the resources they need to safely reopen our economy, and Sen. Moran is pleased to see this relief reaching Kansas communities statewide.
The state’s Strengthening People and Revitalizing Kansas (SPARK) Taskforce developed the plan to distribute the funding, and the first wave will be used for health-related expenses to aid in preventing the spread of the virus, support local health care providers and more. With the distribution of these funds, all 105 of Kansas’ county governments will have received federal dollars to help them navigate the challenges of COVID-19.
The funding will be distributed to counties based on population with additional aid going to counties that were hit harder by the virus and suffered the highest unemployment rates.
