These people have been placed in two groups, designated as Phase 1A and 1B. More details regarding these groups follow. If you qualify for the vaccine under the Phase 1A or 1B categories, please pre-register for an appointment. Those who show up without appointments will be turned away.

RENTAL ASSISTANCE FUNDS ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY

Tarrant County has allocated $10 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) for the Tarrant County Rental Assistance Program and much of it remains unused. Rental Assistance of up to 3 months for COVID-19 related residential rent/lease delinquencies is available. Tenants must initiate the application process, but assistance funds will be sent directly to the landlords. We encourage landlords to work with their tenants and use this program BEFORE initiating the eviction process.

Applications for rental assistance can be made at the Care 4 Tarrant-Rental Assistance webpage, linked above.

We know the review process is taking some time, and that businesses may be contacting you, as they are us, to find out the status of their applications. All businesses that applied will be sent an email advising them either of an award or if they were ineligible due to various reasons. The Auditor’s Office hopes to have all eligible applicant grants awarded by the end of this month. As some of the ineligible emails have gone out, applicants have emailed us back asking to change their location address, change an answer to a question, etc. Unfortunately, we cannot reopen the application portal or make changes to an application after the application and the information provided was attested to and submitted by the applicant. We encourage these applicants to monitor our County website should additional future grant funding become available.


Currently, business and residential applications are ongoing for $10 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) set aside for the Rental Assistance Program. Applications for rental assistance can be made here:
