Florida Housing Finance Corporation Coronavirus Relief Fund
The Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) is a portion of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in March 2020 in response to the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Ron DeSantis authorized $120 million of Florida’s CRF allocation to Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) to assist renter and homeowner households that have been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
We recently confirmed that CRF funds can be used by Terra Mar Village home homeowners and tenants to pay monthly lot rent, home rent, home loan payments, and for emergency repairs.
Florida households with income up to 120% of the area median income (AMI) that can demonstrate their incomes have been adversely impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are having difficulty paying housing expenses are eligible for CRF assistance.
The CRF Fund for impacted homeowners and renters is being administered by the local State Housing Partnership Program (SHIP). If you have tenants that are not paying rent or who are having difficulty paying rent, you should provide them information about the Coronavirus Relief Fund.
Additional information, including contact information for the SHIP office in your area is available through the following link - https://www.floridahousing.org/about-florida-housing/coronavirus-relief-fund-for-florida-housing-s-impacted-homeowners-and-renters
