TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Tehama County could be getting financial help from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Chief Administrator, Bill Goodwin, said the big bulk of the costs would help out with social and public safety services.
The county is excepted to receive a little over $6 million in CARES Act money and it is looking to use some of that money to cover expenses.
Goodwin said because of the coronavirus pandemic, key county services like law enforcement and health services have been impacted.
CARES Act dollars would also be used to cover facility improvements.
"We've completely revamped our administration building with sneeze screens, the way we've handled board meetings with technology rather than in-person, every department has incurred costs to be able to continue to serve the public during this COVID," said Goodwin.
Goodwin said the county will have to justify every penny it gets reimbursed.
If the county is not able to do so, then those dollars will stay with the state.
Back in March, the U.S. government approved $2 trillion dollars in coronavirus aid to help fight the spreading of coronavirus.
