City Approves CARES Act Funding For Non-Profits

Several non-profits in Goldsboro are expecting a share of the city’s CARES Act funding.

At last week’s city council meeting, Goldsboro City Manager Tim Salmon went through how the $200,000 would be dispersed and what it could be used for.

Salmon says the grants can support food, rent and utility expenses for residents.

Also, the funds can support supplies, case management and facility accommodations for virtual learning and social distancing.

Assistant to the City Manager Octavius Murphy explained what the non-profit organizations would have to provide to the city for spending the grants.

The grants would basically be used to reimburse the non-profits for the coronavirus-related expenses.

These grants are funded by money allotted to the City from the County of Wayne through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

Using the nearly $1 million in CARES Act funding provided to the city, Goldsboro is also offering a total of $100,000 in grants to small businesses impacted by the pandemic.
