Entities belonging to the Alamo Area Council of Governments, or AACOG, have requested more than $4.1 million in coronavirus relief funds through the states Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program. Requests exceeding available funds likely means that entities will receive only a portion of the funds requested to help offset budget issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
