Jefferson County CARES Act Support
In 2020, Jefferson County received $101.7 million in federal relief funds as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Jefferson County Board of Commissioners began the work quickly to share those funds to ensure that the cities, nonprofits, and our community have funding to help businesses re-open and to support services that help our neighbors facing economic hardship due to the pandemic.
This funding helped cover costs necessary to respond to the ongoing public health emergency related to COVID-19 and included allocated funding to help:
- Cities and towns
- Chambers of Commerce
- Local government entities
- Food programs
- County operations
The breakdown of these funds are shown in the infographic below, or see the same infographic in a larger format (PDF).
