CARES Act Relief Fund

Thank you for your interest in CARES Act Relief Fund grant information.

The goal of the CARES Act Relief Fund is to promote recovery by funding programs and services that support the needs of those impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. As part of this fund, Greene County has received $34 million to help support local coronavirus response efforts. These funds will be distributed back into our community for area expenses related to the virus and to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19.

As a means to streamline the fund distribution process and to meet the immediate needs of residents, business owners, nonprofit organizations and our municipal and community partners, the Greene County Commission has developed an organizational structure for payments that centers on six priority areas:

Grant guidelines and application processes are being developed and will be made available on this section of the Greene County website. A community advisory council will then review those applications and make recommendations to the Greene County Commission for final decisions.

We ask for your patience as we perform some additional testing on the CARES Act Relief Fund application submission process. To help you prepare your documentation for when the process goes live, a sample application is available to view here.

Please check back to this page, as related information will be posted and updated here.
