Aug. 12: Johnson County seeking feedback about COVID-19

Coronavirus update square

Johnson County has an allocation of approximately $30 million in COVID Relief Funds to invest into our community. These funds are part of a larger federal distribution to the county, and make up Phase II of their CARES Act funding program. We have identified six key areas where we want to make a difference:

  • Mental Health
  • Aging
  • Housing
  • Small business assistance
  • Workforce development
  • Digital access

To optimize these dollars in our community, we want to understand how COVID-19 has impacted our residents, businesses and organizations. We have partnered with the University of Kansas and All in for Kansas Kids to gather stories from every corner of our county through a simple online survey that can be accessed here: 

English: https://ourtomorro.ws/JoCoStories
Spanish: https://ourtomorro.ws/JoCoStories_es

Through the survey, you’ll be asked to share a story of how you are coping, or with what you have been struggling, during this pandemic.

The deadline for the survey is Aug. 21. The timeframe is short because funds must be expended by Dec. 30. These stories will make up one step of a process that will culminate in the development of several proposals to be considered by the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners.

The State of Kansas has released a supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Johnson County for distribution to businesses for use by their employees. 

Johnson County has expanded the list of eligible groups to now include all businesses and organizations. Items available include: 

  • Disposable masks 
  • Face shields
  • Cloth reusable (washable) gowns
  • One-time use semi-impermeable gowns

There is no cost to receive the PPE. For more information or to request items, visit jocogov.org/ppe
