Following the application by several local businesses for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds, commissioners approved moving forward with disbursement.

The county was recently awarded $132,000 from the Kansas Department of Commerce to help with COVID-19 relief, in particular, to help small businesses retain workers.

A second round for additional businesses to apply for CDBG-CV funds will also begin immediately, agreed commissioners.
