BEGINNING BALANCE

In April 2020, Tulsa County received $113,690,799.60 from the U.S. CARES Act.

SET ASIDE OR SPENT TO DATE

Each week the Tulsa County BOCC approves new Tulsa County CARES programs and funding. This number reflects the total amount allocated across all programs whether or not an individual program has received or spent the full amount to date.

HELPING SMALL BUSINESSES AND NONPROFITS

The BOCC allocated $50 million to the TEDC RESET program to administer forgivable loans and grants to small businesses and nonprofits, respectively. Small businesses with fewer than 100 employees may receive up to $125,000, and nonprofits may receive up to $250,000.

RENTAL ASSISTANCE

The BOCC initially allocated up to $14.25 million to provide emergency rental assistance for residents of Tulsa County across all municipalities and other unincorporated areas. As the program wraps up, BOCC will reallocate the remainder.


TESTING AND PUBLIC HEALTH

Tulsa County CARES funding supports Tulsa Health Department efforts to administer tests, conduct contact tracing and educate residents on the best practices to reduce transmission of COVID-19 in the community.

AGENCY SUPPORT

Additional funds are allocated to key government agencies and civic nonprofit organizations that provide support throughout all of Tulsa County, including Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency, Tulsa County Election Board and many more.

SUPPORTING MUNICIPALITIES

Tulsa County municipalities benefit from a number of Tulsa County CARES programs, including direct reimbursement for COVID-19 related expenses, TEDC RESET funds, rental assistance and county-wide agency support. The map below offers a breakdown of each Tulsa County municipality’s direct and indirect CARES expenditures, adjusted for population.

Unspent Allocations

Figures below show major allocations that are flagged for potential reappropriation due to: (1) incomplete or missing documentation, or (2) substantial project completion costs that came in under the original estimate. As Tulsa County CARES approaches the Dec. 30 deadline to expend all funds, the allocations below and unused funds from other major projects will continue to be reviewed.
