The Office of Budget and Management (OBM), in accordance with HB 481, is distributing Coronavirus Relief Funds provided to the state from the US Department of Treasury as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"). OBM is currently accepting registrations for the Local Government Assistance Program from counties and jurisdictions. Registrations enable the recipient of funds access to the grants portal to report on funds as required by OBM and HB 481.
Funds must be used in accordance with the requirements of Section 5001 of the "Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act," as described in 42 U.S.C. 601(d) and must adhere to guidance published by the US Department of Treasury and OBM. Resolutions, as required by HB 481, may be submitted to OBM via e-mail at email@example.com. While the CRF disbursements for cities, villages, and townships will flow from the state through county auditors, OBM considers each local government to be a subrecipient of the state and will structure reporting and monitoring that way.
