Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear on Wednesday announced the Department for Local Government (DLG) has been awarded an additional $6 million from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act through the Economic Development Association (EDA).
The funding will reimburse Kentucky's 15 Area Development Districts (ADDS) for costs associated with COVID-19.
“Our Area Development Districts are critical parts of our local communities,” said Gov. Beshear. “These funds come at a crucial time when we are looking for ways to strengthen our communities and thoughtfully provide new opportunities while continuing to keep Kentuckians safe."
"I am confident their guidance and this funding will help our cities and counties develop recovery plans that will help us come out of COVID-19 stronger than before," Gov. Beshear went on to say.
