Erie County received over $24 million throughout the states CARES Act County Relief Program.
The Erie County website will have a map that shows where the money is going.
“So that the community can see how this money is going out and that we are getting it all over Erie County and that many are going to benefit from this. We want to be extremely transparent on the use of this County CARES Act Fund.” said County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper.
A task force has been meeting since June to see how this money should be spent.
