Cumberland County will distribute another $823,775 in small business and child care facility loans in a second round of CARES Act-funded economic relief.

After distributing the lion’s share of the county’s $22.9 million federal relief allocation in August, the county commissioners established a second round of funding to cover small business requests under $5,000 as well as aid for child care providers.
