Through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act fund, the federal government gave Gov. Doug Ducey $1.9 billion to allocate locally.
Ducey announced May 28 that he will provide $440 million to cities and towns.
More than $30 million of that will land in the West Valley.
The funds come just as cities are putting their annual budgets together. But there are strict stipulations on how the money can be used—only for public health and public safety.
