On July 8th, Scotland County is making an application available to request CARES Act funds for a second round of funding. For the second round of funding, local governments and non-profit entities will be eligible to submit an application. Applications for the second round of funding may be based on: (1) requests for reimbursement of eligible expenses or costs already incurred during the period March 1 through June 30, 2020; and/or (2) requests for an award of funds for eligible expenses or costs to be incurred by the applicant once an award decision is made. An applicant may submit an application for one or both of these funding approaches. Requests must satisfy the requirements of the CARES Act and Treasury guidance.
For requests for reimbursement already incurred, applicants will be required to submit sufficient supporting documentation such as invoices, receipts, and proof of payment with the application.
For requests for an award of funds for expenses or costs to be incurred, sufficient supporting documentation in support of the request must be included with the application. In the event an award is made for this type of request, the County anticipates disbursing 50% of the awarded funds after execution of the written agreement with the County, and the applicant will be required to submit additional supporting documentation in accordance with the requirements of the CARES Act in order for the County to disburse the remaining funds awarded.
The County will not consider awarding funds to meet payroll expenses, except for payroll costs for public health and public safety employees for services substantially dedicated to mitigating or responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency, or unbudgeted and unanticipated overtime costs or payroll expenses related to hiring new employees which were unbudgeted and unanticipated in order to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Applications for the second round of funding are due on July 31, 2020. The County will then review and evaluate the applications for completeness (including supporting documentation), compliance with the CARES Act requirements and Treasury guidance, and anticipates making award decisions on or before August 13. Award recipients will be required to enter into a written agreement with the County prior to disbursement of awarded funds.
The application is available through the County Clerk’s office, or a fillable application can be found at https://www.scotlandcountymo.org. Questions regarding the application process may be directed to the County Clerk, (660) 465-7027.
Depending upon the number of applications received and amount of funds awarded in this round of funding, the County anticipates potential additional rounds of funding.
