Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

On April 15, 2020, the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) wrote county CAOs urging them to submit letters to their respective representatives in Congress addressing counties' needs in pending coronavirus relief legislation.

 

The federal Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) provides direct relief only to counties with populations greater than 500,000. Smaller counties, while eligible to receive suballocated funding through the State, are not guaranteed any CRF dollars.

 

CSAC, and the Chair's letter to Senators Feinstein and Harris and Representative McClintock, ask for increased CRF funding, as well as provisions for counties of all sizes to receive funding difrectly.
