The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders announced that Monmouth County has received nearly $108 million in federal stimulus money. The $107.97 million comes as part of the CARES Act, the $2.2 trillion stimulus package signed into law last month, according to a press release.

The money is to be used to offset the unexpected expenditures related to COVID-19 from March 1, 2020 through Dec. 30, 2020, according to the press release.

“We are grateful to the federal government and our congressional delegation for this funding that will help us continue to serve the residents of Monmouth County,” Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone said.

“The county remains on the front lines of the response to this pandemic and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of our residents.

“While the money has been given directly to the county to offset costs, we are planning to use this funding to provide relief to all 53 of our municipalities. I plan on reaching out to the mayors once we receive more guidelines on how we can use these funds,” Arnone said.
