In collaboration with the Department for Local Government, Gov. Andy Beshear announced several governmental entities had been granted a total of $3,667,367 in reimbursements through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act for expenses related to COVID-19.
The City of Hodgenville and Meade County Government receive preliminary approval. Hodgenville plans to use $232,833 to reimburse first responder payroll costs and Meade County would use $701,414 to reimburse costs of PPE and police and EMS payroll.
They will receive reimbursements once final documentation is submitted, according to a news release.
“Our local governments have been life lines in our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why this funding is so important,” Beshear said in the release. “We are grateful for their hard work and dedication to keeping Kentuckians safe.”
