Step 3A: OPERATING COSTS: “Operating Costs” means rent or mortgage payments (as applicable), utility costs, vendor payments to support the Grantee’s operations, but specifically excluding COVID related expenses. Operating Cost may include payroll, but only to the extent the Grantee has not applied for, or received, PPP funding from the CARES Act program and to the extent not included in COVID related expenses.

Please retain all supporting documentation as the information will need to be submitted with the application and the information may be requested by the County or U.S. Treasury if additional audits of the program are required. These expenses are costs and expenses that the Grantee incurred between March 1, 2020 and the September 30, 2020. The Grantee must be able to present these documents if audited.
