Rapid Response Recovery Assistance Program (R3)

Hillsborough County's Rapid Response Recovery Assistance Program is intended to assist local small businesses and County residents directly impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. These programs were created by the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners to direct Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds as part of a comprehensive initiative to provide immediate relief, long-term community health and stability, and a full and robust economic recovery.
