Also as part of the day, the Board will receive an impact report on the Leon CARES program as well as a presentation and discussion of the Board's meeting procedures. To date, Leon CARES is the largest aid program in our County's history with over $60 million in federal funds to individuals and small businesses most impacted by the virus. The Report provides a detailed overview of all the Leon CARES partnerships and direct assistance programs established since July to provide critical public health services, support services and financial assistance to those impacted most by the COVID-19 virus. The overview will also highlight the community-wide impacts of the Leon CARES expenditure plan in addressing the needs of thousands of individuals, businesses and nonprofits throughout Leon County.
