Centralia awards more than $180,000 in CARES Act funding to local groups
The Centralia City Council this week awarded more than $180,000 in CARES Act funding to three applicants for its “Centralia Cares Response Proposal Program.” City finance director Bret Broderson says the largest award is to the Boys and Girls Club of Lewis County for almost $75,000 for a child care program.. The other two recipients are the Centralia Downtown Association, which is to receive $55,750 for market expansion e-commerce grants, and Gather Church for $50,000 for a utility and rent assistance program.
The money is part of the $515,000 the city is receiving in CARES Act funding.
Earlier this month the City Council created a Centralia scrip program using $50,000 of the money.
City manager Rob Hill says the city will consider options for using the remaining $284,000 of the CARES Act funding.
