FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Andy Beshear says more than 360 Kentucky cities will receive $157 million in American Rescue Plan funding as soon as next week.

The funds, which were allocated based on population size, can be used to offset COVID-19 expenses, including the costs of personal protective equipment, vaccination clinics or loss of revenue.

Local governments will receive half of their total now, with the second half coming next year.
