A CARES Act Guidance Sheet is available from the US Treasury
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security ACT (CARES Act) passed on March 27, 2020, and
signed by President Trump, established the Coronavirus Relief Fund and appropriated $150 billion to
Coronavirus Relief Fund. This fund is to be used to make payments for specified uses to states and
certain local governments. The State of Missouri received about $2.3 billion of this fund and Pulaski
County’s share is $6,171,851. Pulaski County will use the guidelines provided by the U.S. Department
of Treasury and the State of Missouri in making awards of the funds received under the CARES Act.
Please note while businesses may be eligible for funding, the
county has yet to determine that and a separate application would be used if a business grant program is established.
