The primary objective of Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) grant funding is to provide funding to assist eligible states, local units of government, and tribes in preventing, preparing for, and responding to the coronavirus. In Kentucky, this will occur through grants to eligible entities working to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus.
Allowable projects and purposes include, but are not limited to, overtime (related to the virus), equipment (including law enforcement and medical personal protective equipment), hiring, supplies (such as gloves, masks, sanitizer), training, travel expenses (particularly related to the distribution of resources to the most impacted areas), and addressing the medical needs of inmates in state and local prisons, jails, and detention centers.
Eligible entities must maintain appropriate programmatic and financial records that fully disclose and document the amount and disposition of funds received, maintain compliance with federal civil rights legislation, including federal statutes and regulations that prohibit discrimination in federally-assisted programs or activities.
The solicitation will remain open until all funds have been awarded. The Kentucky Justice & Public Safety Cabinet’s Grants Management Division will fund successful applicants on a rolling basis as applications are received.
