LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — On Wednesday, Lancaster County Commissioners decided where the remaining federal CARES Act coronavirus relief funds would be allocated.
The Commissioners had $36 million left in federal funding to allocate or reallocate, with $10 million of the money providing economic recovery and $3 million to nursing homes. The additional money left over will allow schools and local municipalities to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
“It goes more toward protecting lives and livelihoods,” Commissioner Ray D’Agostino said. He said this CARES Act money will provide financial support and protect the most vulnerable communities.
