In March, President Donald Trump signed into law the CARES Act, over $2 billion is allocated to the state of Oklahoma for state agency programs and the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF), which provides federal financial support to state, local and tribal governments navigating the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
As part of the CRF, Oklahoma was allocated $1.534 billion in federal funding to support COVID-19-related government expenses. As defined by the U.S. Treasury, the state is largely responsible for facilitating reimbursements of these CRF funds to state agencies, cities, counties and tribal governments.
A copy of the U.S. Treasury’s guidance for reimbursement can be read here.
The Stitt administration is committed to the transparent communications of the state’s CARES Act expenditures, which can be viewed in real time on Oklahoma’s Online Checkbook below.
