The Newton County Commission received $6.8 million in CARES Act Funding to support Newton County in its response and recovery from COVID-19. The Commission has established a process for entities to apply for reimbursement of eligible expenses incurred from March 1- December 30, 2020.
Links to the Act, Guidelines, Questions and Answers, and up-to-date information regarding CARES funding may be found at https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/cares/state-and-local-governments. Additional information is also located at https://treasurer.mo.gov/COVID.
CARES funding applications and information will be available at www.newtoncountymo.com/CARES. If entities have questions, they can reference this web site for information.
CARES funding will be paid on a reimbursement basis only; no loans or grants will be awarded at this time. First round or initial funding will be prioritized by funding group and expenses already incurred and paid by entities. Submissions will be reviewed on a weekly basis.
The Newton County Commission is committed to entities in our County. We understand the needs of our community and will work as quickly and diligently as possible to release the CARES Act funding.
