TAUD has received several inquiries about whether funds
are available for utilities under the CARES Act or the Governorís Local
Government Support Grants. Local governments are referenced in some of
the funding programs established by the CARES Act. Local governments are
the recipients of the Governorís Local Government Support Grants.
However, precious little of these funds are available for local
government utilities which provide water, sewer and natural gas service.
This Update lists some of the funding programs you have been hearing
about and explains why they are not available to utility districts,
utility authorities and municipal and county utility systems.
