Champaign and Urbana distributed more than $700,000 in federally-funded COVID-19 relief grants through the Coronavirus Urgent Remediation Emergency program created by the state.

Champaign announced that 105 businesses received $433,000 for expenses incurred last year from March through the end of the year, and Urbana distributed about $280,000 to 32 businesses.

Champaign capped its grants at $5,000, which could be used for items that improved workplace safety, such as personal protective equipment, ventilation improvements, professional cleaning, tent rentals and outdoor heating.

Champaign was awarded $800,000 to distribute and Urbana was awarded $500,000.

“We have approximately $220,000 remaining to spend,” said Stepheny McMahon, Urbana’s Interim Economic Development Supervisor. “We're hoping to make a few changes to the scope of the grant and promote (it) to receive new applicants.”
