Moraga to Receive $3.35 Million in COVID Rescue Funds


The recently-passed $1.9 Trillion American Recovery Act has provisions for significant relief to state and local governments.


Moraga is slated to receive $3,350,000 in two tranches over the course of the next 12 or so months.


These funds for state governments, metropolitan cities, municipalities and counties may be used to cover costs incurred to:

  • Respond to the public health emergency with respect to COVID-19 or its negative economic impacts, including assistance to households, small businesses and nonprofits, or aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel and hospitality.

  • Respond to workers performing essential work during the public health emergency by providing premium pay to eligible workers or grants to eligible employers.

  • Provide government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue of states, territories or tribal governments due to the public health emergency.

  • Make investments in water, sewer or broadband infrastructure.

We'll provide an update as more information becomes available via federal guidelines and from the town.
