Eastgate gets federal funds to assist in viral outbreak

YOUNGSTOWN — Eastgate Regional Council of Governments received $400,000 through the CARES Act to update and fortify programs that help communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grant will help Eastgate respond to the outbreak by supporting growth in the logistics, electric vehicle transportation and advanced manufacturing sectors, as well as creating a response plan to reduce future disruptions in material supply chains.

The grant is part of $2 million given to several entities in Ohio designated Economic Development Districts through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
