With Covid-19 impacting so many hardworking families in Coral Springs, the city is now offering rent and utility help.
In a partnership with the Broward County City Managers’ Association, Coral Springs was approved for funding to help residents impacted by the pandemic through the CARES Act, allocated to Broward after being issued to the state of Florida earlier this year.
Coral Springs will use these funds for rental and utility assistance. If accepted, the financial assistance will cover rent and past-due utilities to residents from April 1, 2020, through December.
The funds will be paid directly to the landlord/utility company, with the maximum award being capped at $10,000. Applicants must demonstrate eligibility through documentation that indicates a loss of income, reduction in hours, or unemployment due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Visit coralsprings.org/rentals to view eligibility requirements, the necessary documents and to print the application.
Since funding is limited, assistance will be provided on a first-come and first-approved basis. The completed application and all pertinent documentation needs to be returned in person to the Coral Springs Gymnasium at 2501 Coral Springs Drive) on the following dates:
Wednesday, October 28, from 8:30 am – 5:00 p.m.
Thursday, October 29, from 8:30 am – 5:00 p.m.
Friday, October 30, from 8:30 am – 3:00 p.m.
