The Charlotte CARES program provides assistance to resident’s who’ve suffered financial crisis due to COVID-19. The COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) has been offering on-line access to assistance with rent, mortgage, utilities and other needs since March 17, 2020 with Charlotte County Human Services processing applications submitted through the COAD website and the Gulf Coast Partnership assisting with unmet needs. With the authorization of #32.9 million in CARES Act funding for Charlotte County, Charlotte CARES sets aside approximately 20% of those funds for individual assistance available through December 30.
