Coronavirus Relief Fund Dashboard* (Phase 1 - Appropriations & Grants)
The State of Vermont has received more than $1.4 billion in federal assistance through a number of Congressional Acts passed to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of this federal aid was received as direct aid to the State, with additional funding through increases to existing federal formula grant programs. One federal act, entitled the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act") included an allocation to Vermont of $1.25 billion in Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF). Authorization for the State to spend the CRF moneys were made by the Joint Fiscal Committee (for emergency spending) and by the Vermont General Assembly through the normal appropriations process. The CRF data shown below has been appropriated though a combination of emergency action by the Joint Fiscal Committee and through acts passed by the Vermont Legislature and signed by Governor Scott to provide assistance to individuals, families, vulnerable populations and businesses affected by the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. State agencies/departments and other entities were authorized to create and administer grant programs using these funds for COVID-19 relief.
This website exhibits aggregate information on the CRF funds appropriated by the Vermont Legislature. The reporting categories used align with the purpose and beneficiaries of the grants. Additional spending decisions and expenditure information will be added in Phases as the data become available and are verified.
