Residents suffering financial hardship can apply for mortgage assistance through the City of Coral Springs.
As part of the Community Block Grant Program, the city received a federal funding allocation from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide mortgage assistance for homeowners.
To qualify, residents must demonstrate they experienced a loss of income, reduction in hours of employment, or unemployment, as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a statement from the city.
“In addition to the more than $2 million in CARES Act funding the city distributed for rental and utility assistance, I am so proud that we are also assisting homeowners who suffered financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Scott Brook. “The coordination and allocation of funds by city staff truly demonstrates our commitment to ensure Coral Springs receives our fair share of federal funding, which directly benefits residents.”
Applicant(s) who own a home in Coral Springs must have documentation about the loss of income, reduction in employment hours, or unemployment resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, which contributed to missed mortgage payments escrow, or HOA payments. View other eligibility requirements.
If granted, assistance will be provided for past-due mortgage payments, escrow, or other fees from April 1, 2020, until the present.
Financial assistance must be paid directly to the service provider/lender and is limited to a maximum award of $10,000 per homeowner.
