Federal coronavirus recovery funds

The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds will deliver $350 billion for state, local, territorial and tribal governments to respond to the COVID-19 emergency and bring back jobs. The funds provide substantial flexibility to meet local needs, as well as water, sewer and broadband infrastructure. Join in one of the first conversations regarding the share of the funds that Sangamon County and the City of Springfield will each receive. The speakers will be Sangamon County administrator Brian McFadden, City of Springfield management and budget director William McCarty and UIS Professor Beverly Bunch. The discussion will be moderated by Norm Sims. A live audience is welcome at this program which will also be livestreamed on Citizens Club of Springfield's Facebook page. The program begins at 8 a.m. following a coffee reception.
