How small cities can use coronavirus relief funds

Contact: AWC online learning

Earlier this year, Governor Inslee announced that each city in Washington was eligible for at least $25,000 in reimbursements for COVID-related expenses.  While these much-needed funds were appreciated, many smaller cities struggled to find expenses that met the Treasury Department's eligibility critieria. Join AWC, the Department of Commerce, and elected leaders as we discuss:

  • How smaller cities can use Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF);
  • How to properly apply for reimbursements; and
  • What resources are available for city leaders as they navigate using CRF funds.
