CARES Funding Tracker

COVID-19 Relief Fund

Allowable expenses for these federal funds have been extended to December 31, 2021. If you have already been awarded these funds and have any questions, please contact resourcedesk@alaska.gov. If you have not yet accessed your allocated funds, please email resourcedesk@alaska.gov urgently to get started.

FEMA has recently expanded eligible reimbursable activities, and expenses may be covered retroactively beginning January 2020. If you have CARES expenses which qualify for the FEMA funding, you may reallocate expenses from CARES to FEMA (though you may not double-claim your expenses). More information is available online, or you can contact your Local Government Specialist; or email 2020_covid-19@ak-prepared.com.

More information can be found at the The State of Alaska’s main Covid-19 website. .
