How did Hanover County spend its CARES Act money?

In March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into federal law providing financial assistance to American families, workers, small businesses, as well as state and local governments.  Hanover County received $18.8 million of Federal CARES Act funding to help navigate and respond to the pandemic, and the Board of Supervisors appropriated the funding to meet community needs. 

Jacob Sumner, Director of Finance and Management Services, gave a final report on the CARES Act expenditures at the March 10 Board of Supervisors meeting. Some of the primary categories of expenditures were for Public Safety, Education, technology, community support, social distancing and safety measures as well as the Town of Ashland.
