Boca Raton is once again making available relief funds to city homeowners and renters who have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city has received a $357,280 Community Development Block Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The grant allows the city to offer a Rental Assistance Program and Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Assistance Program.
People eligible to receive assistance include those who have lost jobs, had a business close or experienced reduced employment hours, illness or death of a family member due to the coronavirus or financial hardship because of school or day-care closures.
Applicants can receive assistance if they did not receive help from another agency’s relief program that covered the same period of time.
Applications must be submitted through an online form that became available on the city’s website on Oct. 19. They will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Further information about application requirements is available on the city’s website at www.myboca.us/HousingRelief.
