STATEHOUSE (May 29, 2020) – The city of Noblesville and Hamilton County are eligible for more than $12.7 million to cover COVID-19-related expenses through the federal stimulus package, according to State Rep. Chuck Goodrich (R-Noblesville).

Indiana allocated $300 million in federal funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economics Security Act to counties and communities for reimbursement of expenditures related to the pandemic. The funding, allocated based on population, cannot be used to replace lost tax revenue.

"Our communities have been working tirelessly to provide Hoosiers with personal protective equipment, including small businesses," Goodrich said. "These are the types of expenses cities and towns can apply to recapture through these federal dollars."

Hamilton County is eligible for $10,709,238 in reimbursement funding. In addition, Noblesville is eligible to receive $2,048,273.

Indiana Finance Authority is in charge of implementing guidelines on how each county, city and town can use the funding, as well as compiling reimbursement requests through accepted documentation including invoices. Visit in.gov/ifa for more information.
