Leon CARES Small Business Applications Available for Baseline Funding Between $2k-$6k

If you have been impacted by COVID-19, you may be eligible to receive direct assistance through Leon County’s Leon CARES program. The Leon CARES expenditure plan, approved by the Board of County Commissioners in July 2020, uses federal dollars to fund essential public health and safety expenditures related to COVID-19 including enhanced testing and contact tracing, direct assistance to individuals experiencing financial hardship, a variety of human service needs, critical economic relief to the local business community, and direct COVID-related costs incurred by the County, Constitutional and Judicial Offices, and the City of Tallahassee.
