Butler, Carter, Reynolds and Ripley County CARES Act Application

The Ozark Foothills Regional Planning Commission (OFRPC) is administering the CARES Act funds received by Butler, Ripley, Reynolds and Carter Counties and is now accepting applications for CARES Act fund reimbursement requests.

Carter County will now accept applications for reimbursements of eligible expenses or costs already incurred during the period March 1 through July 31, 2020 and for eligible expenses for future COVID-19-related response needs. Local governments, political subdivisions, and non-profits located within the four counties are eligible to apply for both reimbursement requests and future COVID-19 response needs. Application requests for reimbursements must be based on eligible expenses or costs already incurred during the period March 1 through July 31, 2020. Applications for future COVID-19 response needs can be based on expenses or costs not yet incurred but needed to respond to the pandemic. Both application requests must satisfy the requirements of the CARES Act and Treasury guidance. Applicants will be required to submit sufficient supporting documentation such as invoices, receipts, and proof of payment.

Applications for this round of funding are due according to the below schedules. The OFRPC will review the applications for completeness (including supporting documentation), compliance with the CARES Act requirements and Treasury guidance, with final award decisions made by Carter County by the end of August.  Award recipients will be required to enter into a written agreement with the County prior to disbursement of awarded funds.
