CARES Program Update for Orange County Individuals & Families

Orange County Government has invested an additional $30 million into the Individual and Family Assistance Program, increasing the total investment to $60 million. The program provides a one-time payment of $1,000 per household for residents affected by COVID-19 to help bridge financial gaps. Residents who have already received funding from Orange County’s CARES Act Individual and Family Assistance Program are not eligible to apply.

The application portal will open on:

  • Monday, October 12, 2020 at 8 a.m.
  • Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 8 a.m.
  • Only one address per household can receive funding. That means if there are multiple people living in one household, only one person in that household can apply and get funding.
  • You cannot use PO Boxes to apply for the funding. You must use a physical address where you reside—and not a family member’s address.
