Woolpert and Centric Consulting are working together to help local governments access, maximize and expedite funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The longtime partners will provide CARES Act Advisory and Implementation Services to enable municipalities to track, process, utilize and benefit from resources related to COVID-19. In March, the CARES Act established the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund to financially assist state, local and tribal governments as they work to preserve jobs and protect people from the public health impacts of COVID-19. The much-needed funding is being allocated within strict timing and eligibility guidelines, and governments have been given a short window in which to determine, assign and execute eligible projects. Funds must be obligated by Dec. 31, 2020.
