New Program Launched to Help Duval County Residents Avoid Eviction and Foreclosure
As you might have read, the federal rules preventing evictions and foreclosures are currently set to expire on December 31, 2020. This means that a huge wave of evictions and foreclosures could hit Florida in 2021. It is not too late to get help to bring your rent or mortgage payments current. Local programs are still accepting applications, and these programs can help Florida renters and homeowners get their accounts in order before federal protections end.
The New Program Making Millions of Dollars Available to Duval County Residents
News4Jax reports that a new program is providing over $5 million in financial assistance to residents of Duval County. Applicants can apply for grants of up to $5,000 per residential property and$10,000 per commercial property. Payments will go directly to the landlord or lender. The program was launched in late November, so applicants should apply as soon as possible to secure funds before eviction and foreclosure protection send on December 31.
