COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Two area governments have begun looking at how to use CARES Act money for community needs.
Jefferson City leaders are planning to apply for two million dollars in the CARES Act funding.
The money can go to public services, infrastructure, economic assistance, and planning.
Residents can fill out a community needs assessment survey by going to the city's website.
The Boone County Commission is also accepting letters requesting CARES Act funding.
Local businesses and organizations are encouraged to review current guidelines to see if they will be eligible for the funding.
Businesses and organizations can submit a letter to the commission by emailing the link you see on your screen.
The commission is not yet accepting applications for funding.
It should be noted that submission of a letter does not guarantee funding.
