Financial Assistance

The Cares Act

The Talbot County CARES Individual Assistance Program offers emergency financial assistance for Talbot County residents whose income has been reduced because of the COVID-19 public health emergency. CARES assistance can help with rent, mortgage or other housing costs, utilities, car payments and other emergency needs. Payments are made directly to the landlord, mortgage company, utility company or other vendor. All income levels can qualify. 

Families can also now receive assistance with licensed childcare needed so children can attend school virtually. There is no need to demonstrate a reduction in income to qualify for this child care assistance.
