There are millions of people across the country who are now unemployed or furloughed. Times are super tough and some people can no longer afford to pay their rent. Luckily, while some wait for unemployment assistance from the government different local agencies are helping take care of rent.
Now, The North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA) has approved a $1 million rent relief package for those impacted by the coronavirus epidemic. The renters’ relief program will cover two months of rent for qualified residents who live within the NMCRA boundaries. You can find out if you are within those boundaries here.
You must have also lived within the boundaries for a year, show proof you have lost your job or can no longer afford to pay rent because of the pandemic, and have your landlord's information.
To apply, you can get a paper application at the Joe Celestin Center or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
