With an expected $20 million in AZCares funding expected, Peoria’s plan is to put at least some of the money  in the pockets of residents and business owners.

According to information on the AZCares Fund, “The direct allocations must be used on payroll expenses related to an entity’s public health and public safety expenses from March 1 through Dec. 30.”  

But that does not mean all of the $20 million that Peoria is applying for must go to the police and fire departments.

“I want cities to have maximum flexibility and minimal red tape,” Gov. Doug Ducey said, regarding the $440 million of federal CARES Act funds that will go to Arizona cities and towns through the AZCares Fund.
