Because of the high volume of applicants for the CARES Act, the Alachua County Communications Office released the following statement:
"We are processing applications as quickly as possible in the order in which they were received. We have begun sending payments out. Due to the high number of applications, the review process is taking several weeks to complete. This award is funded by the Federal Government CARES Act and requires us to verify the eligibility requirements and documentation before payment is sent.
