Gov. Jay Inslee today announced the state has distributed nearly $365 million in federal funds to help with COVID-19 response and relief efforts across Washington.

Distributed this week to seven state agencies and the University of Washington, the allocations include nearly $351 million in federal CARES Act funding and $13.5 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. To date, the state has distributed more than $950 million in federal COVID-19 relief and response funds.

“This next installment of funds for communities all over the state will be put to work right away to help stabilize and restart our state’s economy,” Inslee said. “These funds are going to those who need it the most— renters, small businesses, tribes and non-profit organizations working with young people.
