Broward County to Launch Online Rental Assistance Program on August 31
Broward County has allocated $25 million in federal CARES funding for a program that will help residents pay portions of unpaid rent for the months of April, May, June, July and August 2020. Funds are not a loan, and do not have to be paid back.
Individuals may be eligible if they meet the following requirements:
- They are a Broward County resident
- They or someone in their household experienced a documented loss or reduction in income related to COVID-19
- Due to the loss of income related to COVID-19, they were unable to pay their rent
- Their landlord agrees to participate
- Assistance equates to a partial payment of rent. For months one and two of the owed rent amount the rental assistance program will pay, and the landlord must agree to, 75% of the amount due. For months three, four and five of rent assistance , the program will pay, and the landlord must agree to, 60% of the amount due. Late fees, if any, will not be covered by the program.
Broward County’s Family Success Division is managing the application process and will approve and distribute funds until depleted.
Application Period Opens August 31
The application period is Monday, August 31 through Sunday, September 6, 2020, from 8AM to 10PM daily. Applications may be submitted online only, at Broward.org/CARES. A computer is not necessary, and the application can be completed on a smartphone or tablet. No in-person applications will be accepted.
Because applicants are required to attach significant amounts of substantiating documentation, residents who believe they are qualified are encouraged to begin today to collect documentation required for the online application process. For details, visit Broward.org/CARES. The application must be completed in one sitting and cannot be partially completed, saved or returned to at a later time.
Examples of the types of documents that may be required depending upon each unique situation are:
Copy of valid government-issued ID
Rental lease agreement or Tenant Verification Form, completed by landlord
Late notice for past due rent/eviction notice/past due notification
Evidence of unemployment or loss of income if self-employed
Once a resident’s application is assigned a case manager, he or she may be asked to supply other documents such as bank statements.
