BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Bucks County will host two forums — one in person and one online — to discuss applying for money through the federal coronavirus relief act.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act included $150 billion to support state and local governments during the virus outbreak.
Through it, the Bucks County Human Services Division will be funding applications from groups meeting needs that include food insecurity, employment, child care, mental health, substance abuse treatment and housing. An application form is available online.
The forums will address Bucks County’s application process and funding priorities. They’ll also allow for public comment about projects specific to Bucks County that could benefit from the funding.
An in-person forum is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15, in Room 110 of the Bucks County Administration Building, at 55 E. Court St. in Doylestown. The forum will include a question-and-answer session with officials from the Human Services Division.
Anyone planning to attend must make a reservation by July 14 via email at [email protected]
The online forum will be hosted via Zoom at noon on Thursday, July 16. No RSVP is required for the session, which also will include a question-and-answer session.
The two forums are open to community based social service providers and agencies, healthcare entities, educational entities and other relevant agencies and members of the public.
