DeSantis announces $250M to help Floridians pay rent & mortgages
Ron DeSantis is making $250 million in CARES Act funding available to help families and individuals cover the cost of rent and mortgage payments. Those funds will be distributed through the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC). County governments will share an additional $120 million to help those who don’t live in affordable housing but still need financial assistance. “There’s not enough affordable housing in Florida,” Price said. It’s unclear whether the governor intends to extend the eviction moratorium.
