Coronavirus Relief Fund for Local Governments
COVID-19 Aid for Counties, Cities, and Towns
The Minnesota Department of Revenue distributed a share of federal aid Minnesota received from the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to eligible local governments that applied for this aid by September 15, 2020.
We distributed a total of $837,547,591 to 85 counties, and 1,521 cities and townships. They may use the aid to support local government services and provide grants to businesses, hospitals, and individuals who've been impacted by COVID-19.
Cities or towns have until November 15, 2020, to spend their CRF aid. On that date, they must return any unspent aid to their home county.
Counties have until December 1, 2020, to spend their CRF aid. They must return any unspent aid to Minnesota Management & Budget (MMB) by December 10, 2020.
