Boca Raton still has funds available to help city homeowners and renters who have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city received a $357,280 Community Development Block Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development last year that allows it to offer a rental assistance program and a mortgage foreclosure prevention assistance program.
People eligible to receive assistance include those who have lost jobs since March 1, 2020, lost employment hours, experienced illness or death of family members due to COVID-19, or whose businesses closed.
Applications must be submitted on the city’s website. Income limits, application requirements and frequently asked questions also can be found at www.myboca.us/HousingRelief, or by calling 561-544-8667.
