Welcome to the Okaloosa County CARES Act Portal
The National COVID 19 Pandemic has significantly impacted many residents of Okaloosa County and our business community. The Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners, in conjunction with our municipalities, is pleased to provide financial grant opportunities to eligible residents and small businesses. We will be providing grants to residents for medical expenses and financial support to small businesses that have been forced to temporarily close, lost significant business revenue, and/or have COVID 19 related expenses. This site provides the criteria for eligibility for these grants as well as an on-line application to be submitted. For residents and businesses that are unable to complete the applications on-line, please call the Okaloosa Recovery Line at 850-598-7956. It is critical that applications be submitted as soon as possible as this support will be provided on a first qualified, first served basis.
