City Council expected to adopt expenditure plan for Elk Grove's $2.1 million CARES Act funding

Paycheck Protection Program SBA: Help for small business owners in ...

At their Wednesday, July 22 regular meeting, the Elk Grove City Council is expected to adopt a resolution adjusting their 2021 budget for allocation of funding from the COVID-19 federal relief funding.

The funding, which was part of the Corona Relief Fund in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) was part of $500 million provided to California. Elk Grove's share is $2,174,997. The funding must be allocated to costs already incurred and those before the end of the 2020 calendar year.

Of the fund, the city has two general categories for the costs incurred to date. The two main categories are City COVD-19 direct expenditures and community programs.

According to the staff report prepared by the finance and budget department, $1 million is requested for the city's COVID-19 direct expenditures. The staff report notes the city has already incurred $720,000 increased personnel costs, and this is mostly for city employee paid leave and additional city workers' compensation costs.

The second main category will be community aid programs and has $1,122,000 available. Among some of the programs are the costs associated with the Great Plates Delivered, which provides meals to senior citizens and homeless meal support.

Additionally, the city council will be presented plans sometime in August to use a portion of that funding to aid local businesses and nonprofits. The small business grants program will receive $750,000; non-profits allocated $200,000 and the balance to other non-specified costs.

The city council meeting starts at 6 p.m. on July 22 and will be conducted via teleconference.
