PASCO COUNTY, FL —- The Pasco CARES Program, offered by the Pasco Board of County Commissioners (BCC), to help people in Pasco pay their bills directly if they experienced economic hardship due to COVID-19 is now closed. Applications opened at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 7 and the first-come, first-served 1,200 resident limit was reached within the first 15 minutes.
We appreciate your patience and understanding, as demand for this program was understandably extremely high.
If you applied for this program and have questions about the application process, please call Pasco County Customer Service at 727.847.2411.
Pasco County received funding for this program through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security or CARES Act to help people pay their mortgage, rent, utility bills and more.
The BCC appropriated $4 million to Pasco CARES with a maximum amount of $3,500 per household. Residents will be income-qualified at or below 80% of the Area Median Income and must prove Pasco residency and economic impact from COVID-19.
Community Development and Community Services will administer the Pasco CARES program as part of our mission to improve the lives of Pasco’s residents through housing and community partnerships using state and federal funding.
