The U.S. Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to provide economic relief to states and local governments to assist communities with the financial burdens caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The State of Ohio allocated a portion of their CARES Act money to Ohio's local governments to help pay for COVID-19 related expenses and other purposes consistent with the CARES Act provisions. To date, the City of Fairborn has received $2.7 million in coronavirus relief money from the State.
The CARES Act funding was established to cover the costs to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, including the provision of economic support to those suffering from the loss of income due to COVID-19. There are several non-profit agencies within the City of Fairborn and surrounding areas that currently provide financial assistance to residents, many of which may have lost all or a portion of their income due to the pandemic.
On Monday, November 1, 2020, Fairborn City Council adopted Resolution 40-20 establishing the Fairborn CARES Act Economic Relief Program. This program permits the city to allocate a portion of CARES Act funding received from the State of Ohio, to reimburse non-profits for the financial assistance they provide to individuals that have suffered a loss of income due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Reimbursements provided under this program need to comply with the eligibility requirements for expenditures made pursuant to the CARES Act provisions. This program is in effect for, and reimburse eligible expenses paid during, the period that began on March 1, 2020, and ends on December 30, 2020.
