Thank you so much to our sister company, Southern States Realty Services, for sharing this valuable and timely information about rental assistance in Florida.


Due to the current health crisis in the country, many states and counties have offered additional funding for household expenses, extended food stamps programs, utilities assistance, etc. One of the programs being offered in Florida is a rental assistance program. This program is offering up to 15 months of rental assistance for renters who have a household income below 80% of Area Median Income (AMI). This program is accepting applications and will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and 3 months of forward-looking rent payments to be paid directly to the landlord. Those applying with an AMI of 50% or below or have experienced unemployment in the last 90 days will be prioritized. There is also assistance available for past due utility payments as well.

If you are a landlord and have a tenant experiencing a hardship you should work with them to see if they qualify for this program. If so, help them to submit the application! To get more information on this program and see the requirements for applying you should visit
