Maricopa County is making it easier for residents to find COVID-19 relief assistance with Take Care, a collection of programs designed to help keep people and businesses healthy during the pandemic.

The programs, funded by the CARES Act, include:

Free COVID-19 Testing – Maricopa County offers free COVID-19 testing at locations across the region.

Free Flu Vaccinations – This year, it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot. Maricopa County makes finding free flu vaccinations easy with its interactive Vaccine Finder, community flu vaccination events held across the county, and three health clinics, which are open to the public.

COVID-19 Crisis Rental Assistance – Through this program, operated by the County and local community actions programs, more than 7,700 months of rent totaling more than $11 million has already been provided to help residents stay in their homes during the pandemic.

COVID-19 Crisis Utility Assistance – Maricopa County households experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible for COVID Crisis Utility Assistance to help them pay gas and electric bills.

Maricopa County Funeral Assistance - Partnering with Valley of the Sun United Way, the County is providing much-needed financial assistance to grieving families unable to pay the cost of a funeral or burial for a loved one.

Maricopa County Small Business & Nonprofit Relief – This program is designed to assist small businesses and non-profit organizations by reimbursing them with grants of up to $25,000 for losses incurred during the pandemic.
