July 2020 Group Watch: CARES Grant Awards

Governor Ivey has announced awards to several entities from the CARES ACT funds. The governor awarded $30 million to be used to establish a COVID-19 testing and safety development program. The program will be implemented by a coalition led by the Alabama Department of Public Health and the University of Alabama Birmingham. The governor awarded $48 million to the Alabama Department of education in response to challenges related to COVID-19. This allocation will enable schools to enact policies established in the Alabama Department of Education’s Roadmap to reopening Schools, such as equipping school buses with WiFi to increase internet connectivity in parts of the state and  providing digital textbook and library resources for students and to provide additional academic support to boost learning opportunities. Governor Ivey unveiled a $100 million small business grant program, called  ”Revive Alabama,” to support businesses with 10 or fewer employees that have been impacted by COVIV-19. Qualifying businesses may receive up to $15,000.
