CARES Act

Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF)

On March 12, 2020, the City declared a local emergency in response to the spread of COVID-19. Several actions were taken by the City to provide immediate economic relief to city businesses and residents, including appropriating $1.5 million on March 17, 2020, to support nonprofits, shelters, services providers, small businesses, first responders, and others affected during the public health crisis.  

 

Based on the State's population, California received a total of $15.3 billion in Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) provided by the federal CARES Act, with $9.5 billion paid to the State and $5.8 billion paid to cities and counties with populations over 500,000. The State allocated $500,000 million of the State's share to cities and counties with populations of less than 500,000.

 

The City of Stockton has received $27,170,185 in CRF. Federal law specifies that these funds may only be used for unbudgeted costs incurred related to COVID-19 relief efforts between March 1, 2020 and December 30, 2020.  All funds must be spent - not just encumbered - by the end of the calendar year.
