$260,985 will be available for childcare while $823,775 will be available for small businesses.
The county says it received 165 applications totaling $1.3 million, which were reviewed and evaluated by the county’s Renew Cumberland Tier 2 Task Force managing the CARES Act grants.
“Originally the board approved more than $400,000 in funding for the Renew Cumberland Tier 2 CARES Act Grant to address additional areas of need in the county,” Commissioner Gary Eichelberger said in a release. “However we found that the need was greater than expected, and it was a priority of the board to make additional funding available for 151 small businesses and childcare facilities affected by COVID-19.”
