How to invest your CARES Act stimulus funding

The CARES Act has released $1.75 billion in stimulus funds for Community Action Agencies and Head Start programs, and more could be released in the future. There is still time to consider how you can invest in your agency — both infrastructure and direct services — to continue to help serve your community.

CARES Act funds can be put toward a variety of activities. Your organization can — and likely should — use your funds to maintain, resume or modify your operation of programs, while also investing in your technology infrastructure to create a more stable and sustainable organization.

You have a big opportunity to address your broader needs, improve your quality of services and increase your capacity to deliver.

With the flexibility of how these stimulus dollars can be allocated, our team can help you strategically evaluate your operations and prioritize current and future spending so you can turn these opportunities into action.
