Harvey County has received funding in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to address health and economic needs within the community. The funding was distributed through the State of Kansas' Strengthening People and Revitalizing Kansas (SPARK) task force.

The SPARK task force is issuing funding in three phases. The first - and current - round focuses on county governments. The second and third phases will seek to address public and private entities. The County was allocated $6,988,960, part of $400 million made available to local governments in Kansas.

The County is seeking feedback through a needs assessment on how local organizations could benefit utilizing the available funding within the parameters of the CARES Act guidelines. The information will be used to guide decision-making in funding allocations.

Examples of disciplines that could submit information include business, economic development, education, health, government, long-term care and non-profit. The survey's intent is to gain information on how COVID-19-related expenses have impacted the organization or community through July 31, or anticipated associated costs through Dec. 30, 2020.

The deadline to submit requests for the needs assessment was July 31, 2020. Results will be reviewed and compiled in the coming weeks.
