Vermont has received $1.4 billion in federal aid for COVID-19 relief, according to a new web page launched by the state auditor.

State Auditor Doug Hoffer announced Thursday the new web page, found at bit.ly/0522Money, is viewable now and will be updated as more information is gathered. According to the site, as of May 19, Vermont has received $1,496,873,968 in federal funds. This does not count $1.25 billion Vermont received from the federal CARES Act, which is subject to the Legislature’s approval.

“Quickly disbursing funds aimed at mitigating this crisis while avoiding fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement is a critical but challenging task,” Hoffer stated. “Providing the public with a transparent accounting of how their money is spent and can be spent is critical to the success of this effort.”
