Kenosha to receive $1 million in federal aid to cover policing costs for unrest

KENOSHA — The Kenosha police and sheriff’s departments will receive $1 million in federal aid to help cover costs associated with unrest in the city.

When President Donald Trump was in Kenosha on Sept. 1, he promised $4 million to local businesses, $42 million for public safety statewide and $1 million to local police. Kenosha City Administrator John Morrissey said the city and county have received word that $1 million in additional federal funds have been allocated for law enforcement.

The money will come through the Justice Assistance Grant, which the county agencies receive every year, but this year’s grant will include an additional $1 million earmarked for the community. 

The federal government also announced a $4 million CARES Act Recovery Assistance grant to the Kenosha Area Business Alliance. That money will be used for a revolving loan fund to provide financing for small businesses and entrepreneurs that have been hurt affected by the coronavirus pandemic in Wisconsin.
