The CARES Act states that payments from the Fund may only be used to cover costs that:
Are necessary expenditures incurred due to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19);
Were not accounted for in the budget most recently approved as of March 27, 2020 (the date of enactment of the CARES Act) for the State or government; and
Were incurred during the period that begins on March 1, 2020, and ends on December 30, 2020.
If you need to incur expenditures before the end of the year, perhaps using a cooperative contract to quickly make that purchase may be an avenue to pursue. Check with your own legal counsel on how those purchases might be made before the end of the calendar year. View fund federal guidelines here.
