In a July 28, 2020, memo from the Secretary of Finance, Localities were informed of Governor Northam’s second and final allocation of funding to local governments from the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) authorized pursuant to the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).
In that memo, local governments were advised that these funds would be available upon submission of a new, signed certification form that was included with the memo, and after completion of an online survey on the locality’s actual and planned uses of the CRF funds. It further stated that the link to this survey would be provided by separate communication later in the week.
On July 31, local governments received an email from the Department of Planning and Budget (email address: email@example.com) that contains a unique link to your locality’s survey form. The survey is being conducted via SurveyMonkey.
Local governments should complete the survey by August 10, 2020. The results will be presented to the Governor and the General Assembly at its Special Session, which will convene on August 18, 2020.
A listing of the questions that are included in this survey is attached for planning purposes.
