The St. Joseph County Commissioners have rejected a CDC minority health grant.

Tuesday, the Commissioners vetoed a bill that would bring $3 million in federal grants for health outreach efforts to minority communities. The South Bend Tribune reports that they feared accepting the money could mean falling under federal COVID restrictions.

The vote comes a month after a similar rejection from the Elkhart County Council.

St. Joe County Commissioners had previously authorized the health department to apply for the grant from the federal government.

All Federal grants need to be abolished.

The Feds take the money from the local tax base, then hand it back to state and local government with onerous strings attached. We would all be much better off if that money was left local, taxed local, and allocated locally.

The Federal grant system is abysmal.
