CARES Act Funding

    CARES Team

    Records Building - 500 Elm Street, Dallas, TX 75202

    The CARES Act is a $2 trillion stimulus bill aimed at helping the people, states and businesses devastated by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Dallas County Commissioners Court approved the creation of the Dallas County CARES team to help manage CARES Act funds on May 5, 2020 via Court Order 2020-0458.  

    The CARES Team provides regular reports to the Commissioners Court and the CARES Act Working group regarding funds received through new funding opportunities, funds allocated by source, and funds actually spent. 

    The CARES team manages the use of the CARES Act funding to appropriately track costs related to responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Additionally, the CARES Team develops and deploy plans to utilize the funding to reopen Dallas County operations safely and ensure county departments have appropriate resources through December 30, 2020 to resume normal operations and clear any backlog of work associated with the shutdown of public-facing operations.
