The $2 trillion CARES Act of 2020 enhanced several federal funding resources for state and local governments, including the Education stabilization fund, the federal transit administration apportionments, and assistance through FEMA. Title V of the CARES Act appropriated $150 billion to states and local governments with populations over 500,000 to spend on COVID-19 related expenditures–a newly established fund called the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF). In addition, several states have distributed some CRF funds to local governments under the 500,000 threshold. Since the distribution of the funds in late April, the U.S. Treasury has developed guidance and FAQs to clarify expense eligibility, required reporting, and records retention. This webinar will detail the development of the CRF guidance, FAQs, and highlight three case studies on the use of CRF funds by a state, county, and city.
