GNVCares Proposes Funding for COVID-19 Assistance

GNVCares Proposes Funding for COVID-19 Assistance

The GCRA is involved in a collaboration with the City Manager’s office and other city departments to develop a relief grant program for small businesses and neighbors in response to the COVID-19 crisis. GNVCares is an effort to reprogram existing resources as well as allocate federal and state dollars that the City of Gainesville will receive under the CARES Act. The existing funds that are proposed to be reallocated are from the General Fund, Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), and GCRA sources.

GNVCares will be going to the City Commission for the approval of the non-CDBG funding on Thursday, April 23, 2020 and for the CDBG funding on Monday, April 27, 2020.
