Job-skills training receiving prime emphasis as county seeks proposals for COVID funding

Martin County is seeking creative and innovative program proposals that are geared toward mitigating the negative social and economic impacts of COVID-19 experienced by Martin County residents in communities most disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

The maximum award is $500,000 per program, subject to funding availability. Heavy emphasis is given to job skills training and addressing social and economic disparities caused by COVID-19. The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund includes direct federal aid to all counties, a broad range of use of the recovery funds, the allowance for lost revenues in the most recent full fiscal year on the local level and a deadline of Dec. 31, 2024 to expend funds.

Martin County’s allocation of funds is $31 million. A partial disbursement of $15 million has been received by the county.
