The portal for the Orange County online CARES Act stimulus check portal closed within 30 minutes after its launch Monday morning.

The county once again reopened its stimulus check portal to aid residents who are facing economic struggles in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which allowed residents to apply for a one time payment of $1,000.

However, after opening at 8 a.m. the portal reached its 15,000 applicant capacity after 30 minutes of service, according to the County website.
