Palm Beach County to receive $290 million for relief

During a virtual roundtable discussion, Congresswoman Lois Frankel was joined by Palm Beach County and city leaders, non-profit organizations and health centers to talk about the money they are eligible for under the American Rescue Plan and how it can be used.

Frankel says Palm Beach County will receive $290 million.

County leaders say some of that money will go towards continuing to fund programs that help people financially impacted by COVID-19 including programs like housing and food assistance, childcare, as well as business grants and COVID-19 testing.

Over a dozen cities like Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth Beach and Jupiter will each receive separate funds to use towards COVID-19 efforts like alleviating negative economic impacts or money used towards an emergency.

In addition, local governments will be able to transfer funds to various non-profit organizations serving people in need through the PPP program.
