Seward County has been awarded funding in the amount of $6,419,281.00 from the State of Kansas under the CARES Act. The Seward County Commission met in a special meeting Wednesday morning and voted to accept these funds.

The general purpose of these funds is to address medical or public health needs related to the emergency and provide economic support to those suffering from employment or business interruptions due to COVID-19. There will be three rounds of funding with each round designed to address different areas impacted by COVID-19. Round one generally deals with reimbursements for COVID-19 related expenses and also future planning costs for Health and Emergency Departments. The $6,419,281.00 is what Seward County will receive for Round one. The later rounds will be more focused on addressing economic impacts related to COVID-19.
