Jacksonville City Council Approves $5.3 Million to Prevent Evictions and Foreclosures During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus has brought many medical, physical, emotional, and financial challenges to many Florida families. While the medical challenges must be largely left to researchers and scientific authorities, there are many different programs available for financial assistance and eviction relief. These programs are here to help, and a Florida eviction attorney can help you protect your legal rights to ensure that you and your family have a safe place to shelter from the coronavirus. You don’t have to face the financial challenges of COVID-19 on your own.

The Jacksonville Daily Record reports that the Jacksonville City Council voted unanimously to shift funds from the Vystar Small Business Relief Program in order to provide relief to both individuals and businesses facing eviction. Grants of up to $5000 for an individual or $10,000 for a business will be made available. The total amount of funds available is over $5 million, so this leaves open the possibility of relief to a huge number of Duval county residents and business owners.

This is just one of many federal, state, and local relief programs that have been made available to Florida families who are behind on their rent.
