Prince George County CARES Coronavirus Relief funding is available to citizens of Prince George County. The CARES funding initiative is to support Prince George families who have been financially impacted by the Pandemic. Depending on availability of funds and household need, Social Services through the CARES Coronavirus Relief, may provide financial assistance for rent/ mortgage payments, clothing, hair services, food, electricity payments, and payments for garbage collection for eligible households. Proof of residency of Prince George County is required. Income guidelines limits are more expansive than the benefits provided by the Virginia Department of Social Services and are more in-line with the Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program. These guidelines allow us to assist those who would normally not qualify for Social Services Benefit Programs.
The financial assistance provided through CARES Coronavirus Relief funding is a one-time opportunity per household to receive financial relief. Funds are limited and will be utilized on a first come first serve basis until all available funds are spent.
