Aberdeen’s Plans for COVID Fund
What the Governor’s COVID Fund Includes
When Governor Kristi Noem visited our community in June, she brought news of the South Dakota Local Government COVID Recovery Fund. This fund was established to help communities throughout South Dakota as they continue to work through the ongoing pandemic. Aberdeen is eligible for up to $6,388,224 in recovery costs, but Noem says this money cannot go towards recovering business losses.
The money from this fund can go towards Personal Protective Equipment, extra testing supplies and equipment, shelters for those who become exposed to the virus, and emergency responses that require overtime. Mayor Travis Schaunaman says the COVID fund’s money will go towards buying Personal Protective Equipment and towards covering the cost of overtime for the Aberdeen Police Department. // – Karlie Spiry
