PASCO COUNTY, Fla.- Pasco County not-for-profit businesses can now apply for reimbursement of qualifying expenses related to COVID-19 under the new Pasco CARES Act Funding Request Program

  • Necessary expenses incurred due to the public health emergency with respect to COVID-19.
  • Expenses not accounted for in a budget most recently approved as of March 27, 2020, (the date of enactment of the CARES Act) for the state or government.
