LeeCARES programs have been extended to assist Lee County residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lee County will start accepting applications online only starting next Monday, Oct. 19, for new rounds of utility payment assistance, expanded childcare assistance and more funding for area food banks.
Lee commissioners approved program extensions to include three new rounds of utility assistance in October, November and December to pay up to $1,000 in water and electric bills for eligible applicants during each round.
Assistance may be provided regardless of whether the applicant has received previous utility assistance.
LeeCARES provided water/sewer and electric bill payment assistance through nearly 10,000 applications made between May and September.
Thank you Lee County!
