EVICTION RELIEF — Both the state and Volusia County are offering help for renters and homeowners facing possible eviction or foreclosure.BEACON PHOTO/JOE CREWS"/>

Recently, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced the next phase of the state’s Homeowner Assistance Fund, a registration portal for homeowners to begin the first step in determining their eligibility to receive assistance.

This phase of the state’s program comes on the heels of the U.S. Treasury’s approval of the state’s Homeowner Assistance Fund Needs Assessment and Plan, which was submitted to the U.S. Treasury, the federal administrator of the program back in August 2021.

Once a homeowner’s registration has been reviewed and the homeowner is determined as potentially eligible, an email with detailed information is sent to the homeowner to complete the next step of the application process.

The fund was created to mitigate financial hardships associated with the COVID-19 pandemic by preventing homeowners’ mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures and displacements, as well as loss of utilities, home energy services, and insurance.
