The City of Goldsboro has a little extra time to spend its nearly $1 million C.A.R.E.S. Act allocation.
City Manager Tim Salmon provided good news on the coronavirus relief funding at the last Goldsboro City Council meeting.
Salmon says the deadline for spending the C.A.R.E.S. money has been extended one year until December 31st, 2021.
The city council had approved spending up to $200,000 from its CARES Act allocation on non-profits impacted by the pandemic.
Salmon says only about $166,000 of that has been spent so far.
Also, only about $55,000 of the $100,000 allocated to assist small businesses in the city has been spent.
So, Salmon says there is still more time to assist those organizations.
