Session Description:

Planning strategically on how to use CARES funding can help cities account for and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. From small area plans for areas affected by COVID-related losses to financial sustainability models to public engagement tools, join in to hear a few examples of what can/should be done with the funding and learn about practical next steps for implementation. This interactive webinar will utilize polling features and provide real time results regarding how current cities are spending their CARES money, discuss regional CARES resources that are forthcoming, and then conclude with a moderated question and answer period.
