Alpena County Commissioner Marty Thomson recently released a list of organizations that benefited from federal CARES funding.
The federal dollars totaling over 4-hundred 5 thousand dollars ($405,702.00) were a reimbursement pass through grant through the Michigan Development Corporation Community Development Block Grant program.
The presentation was part of a required public hearing and a few representatives of local human service agencies appeared to thank the county for keeping them in mind when handing out money.
A few nonprofit organizations were assisted for purchase of food items, supplies, cleaning supplies, and personal protection equipment. Some included St. Bernard's Friends Room, St. Vincent's Food Pantry, Senior Citizens Center, Salvation Army, and Sunrise Mission.
Various county departments were also allocated dollars for similar supplies, the largest single expenditure being over 1-hundred 58 thousand for construction of a new morgue and storage facility at the new Alpena County Jail. District #4 Health was also allocated various supplies, tents, generator, and storage facilities.
