(BEDFORD) – The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs announces their COVID-19 Response Program.
“We know that right now our Main Streets are struggling in our rural and urban areas. And our Office of Community and Rural Affairs is working to help ease their burden. In fact, earlier this week, after working with HUD, OCRA announced a COVID-19 Response Program that is utilizing repurposed CDBG funds. Now, qualified communities will have the flexibility to use these funds for a range of activities that help prevent and respond to the spread of COVID-19. This program could help fund anything from mobile testing areas to economic assistance packages for our many small businesses.” said Lt. Governor Crouch.
