CARES Act Application Deadline is 11-15-20

The Alachua County Commission reminds residents, businesses, and agencies that Sunday, November 15, 2020, is the deadline to apply for Alachua County CARES Act funds. The County Commission approved the Alachua County CARES Act to distribute federal funds for Coronavirus aid. Individuals, businesses, and agencies must reside in Alachua County.

"Many individuals and businesses in our community are in dire straits," Alachua County Commission Chair Robert Hutchinson said. "As our community continues to come together to do what is needed to battle this insidious virus, the County is doing everything we can to get this money into the hands of those who need it most to ensure that they can pay towards their rent, mortgage, utilities, and other expenses."

Visit the Alachua County CARES Act website to apply and learn more about the program.

For those needing assistance, particularly if you are uncomfortable with applying online, there is a live chat feature on the website and a Cares Act help-line at 352-309-2505. The live chat and the help-line are opened from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information, contact Alachua County Communications Director Mark Sexton at 352-264-6979 or msexton@alachuacounty.us.
