Grant funds are to be used for responding to any COVID-19 Related expenses including marketing or creating websites/online ordering systems, interior and exterior improvements related to COVID-19, and purchase of Personal Protective Equipment/supplies.  This grant is funded with Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds authorized under the 2020 CARES Act.
