Stock Photo - CARES ActWhile the county continues to grapple with climbing costs associated with the pandemic, including dramatic costs estimates for schools in the fall, Prince William County has received an infusion of financial aid from the federal government.

The county was recently awarded $41 million in the second round of the federal funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The county was awarded $41 million in May in the first round of funding.

Virginia officials notified the county of the second round of funding on July 28, according to the county.

The board of county supervisors is set to consider a resolution at its meeting Tuesday, Aug. 4, to approve a certificate of receipt, which includes the county agreeing to appropriately spend the funding, among other requirements, according to the proposed resolution. The county would once again split the funding with Dumfries, Haymarket, Occoquan and Quantico if the resolution is approved.

In May, of the $41 million dedicated to the county, the county allocated $451,384 to Dumfries; $147,726 to Haymarket; $94,380 to Occoquan and $45,138 to Quantico, according to the county.
