[ARCHIVED] Council Approves CARES Funding for Food Delivery and Unmet Bills

At their September 3 meeting, the Mountlake Terrace City Council approved contracts with community partners to assist residents who have been financially impacted by COVID-19. Arrangements with Washington Kids in Transition and a partnership comprised of Foundation for Edmonds School District, Mountlake Terrace Community Foundation and Calvary Fellowship are being finalized so residents can apply for help for food delivery or paying certain unmet bills.

A postcard will be mailed to the Mountlake Terrace community next week with information in English and Spanish about applying for funding.  Residents who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 may be able to receive a one-time grant of up to $500 to help pay for certain bills such as water and sewer bills, childcare, car repairs, and medical bills.

“We know folks are struggling to get by during these challenging times and hopefully these grants will help our residents catch up a bit,” stated City Clerk/Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “Thanks to our community partners for stepping forward to work with us.”

To date, the city has used CARES Act funding toward providing childcare services at the Recreation Pavilion, retrofitting city facilities to meet COVID-19 protocols, purchasing safety equipment and cleaning supplies, purchasing and mailing cloth face masks to the community, and technology equipment for remote meetings.

More updates on this grant program will be posted at www.cityofmlt.com/2060, “City of Mountlake Terrace Government” on Facebook, and “CityofMLT” on Twitter.
