Collin County families and individuals impacted by COVID-19 can now apply online for housing and living assistance grants, part of the Collin CARES recovery plan that provides up to $2,500 in monthly financial assistance to each qualifying household.

Program applications opened at 8 a.m. on June 1.

The county plan provides direct financial assistance for housing, utilities, and groceries, with a maximum of four months of eligibility. Direct payments to lenders, landlords, and utility companies may take up to a week to begin once completed applications are approved.

The funds come from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which sent more than $171 million in federal aid to Collin County in relief for family and government COVID-19 related costs incurred from March 1 through the end of the year.

Details and eligibility requirements are posted on the county’s Collin CARES webpage,, and on the City of Allen website.
