Over the summer months the Federal Government released millions of dollars to the State of Missouri earmarked as Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding. Knox County received approximately $464,000.
The Knox County Commission was charged with distributing the funding and did so in two rounds of approval and disbursement.
