Commissioners Court Approves $30 Million COVID-19 Relief Fund for Equitable Economic Relief for Vulnerable Harris County Residents

Proposed by Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis, the $30 million COVID-19 Relief Fund will help our most vulnerable residents pay for rent, food, medical care, child care and other basic needs.

The Harris County COVID-19 Relief Fund (HCCRF), which is slated to be distributed equitably throughout the county, will provide $1,200 for households of one to four residents, and $1,500 for households of five-plus people. It is expected that between 20,000 and 25,000 households will benefit from the fund.
