The Bedford County Board of Supervisors has allocated a portion of its CARES Act funding toward assistance to County residents who have suffered income loss or reduction due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Bedford County has partnered with three local non-profits that will start taking applications and assist beginning September 1, 2020. The assistance will be provided as long as funds are available, or until December 31, 2020.
