Gov. Kay Ivey has allocated $35 million from Alabama’s federal coronavirus relief money to set up a grant program to help doctors, dentists, clinics, ambulance services, and other health care and emergency response providers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The money comes from the $1.8 billion the state received from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act, passed by Congress.
“The health crisis we continue to face has had significant impact on many fronts,” Ivey said. “Certainly, individuals, groups and different industries have felt a financial toll, which is why I am proud to continue getting the CARES Act money into the hands of Alabamians who need it.”
