"The term ‘eligible workers’ means those workers needed to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors and additional sectors as each Governor of a State or territory, or each Tribal government, may designate as critical to protect the health and well-being of the residents of their State, territory, or Tribal government."
Conner Wolfe

The interim final rule adds that essential work is “work involving regular in-person interactions or regular physical handling of items that were also handled by others” and that remote work is not eligible.

@Dr. Chapman, in "critical infrastructure sectors", yes. "Critical infrastructure sectors" should be defined in the Treasury's interim final rules but I haven't found it yet. https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-05-17/pdf/2021-10283.pdf

Also worth tapping funds at municipal level using pre-existing relationships -- in Moco there are close to $100M in dollars going through cities, including about 85Million to Rockville, Gaithersburg, and Takoma Park
