In this particular distribution of funding, $1.96 million was disbursed to expand or alter existing medical facilities to help in the increase patient load due to COVID-19, provided fixed or mobile testing, expand food pantry services to low-to-moderate populations, and provide grants or loans to small businesses to help retain low-to-moderate jobs.
Locally, the City of Knox was awarded $250,000 to provide working capital to local businesses for job retention, and the Town of Lacrosse was awarded $10,000 to install four WiFi hot spots for residents to access the internet to complete eLearning activities, file unemployment claims, and submit job applications.
