Millions of dollars of coronavirus relief funds are coming to Iowa. This money is from the second round of federal COVID-19 relief approved by Congress last month. Amounts for area schools range from $4.2 million for Ottumwa, $1.6 million for Oskaloosa, $405,000 for Pella, $315,400 for Sigourney, $457,000 for Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, $197,000 for North Mahaska and $237,000 for Tri-County. The amount each school district receives is based on the percentage of low-income students in each district.
