October 8, 2020 – Flagler County officials, in conjunction with the organization “Flagler Cares,” announced Wednesday the availability of assistance to residents through Coronavirus Relief Funds (CARES) through the Florida Housing Finance Corporation.
Flagler has received a distribution of $440,765 – including $345,560 for City of Palm Coast – and will receive a second distribution at a later date. As with the Individual Assistance program, the funds are intended to cover rent and mortgage payments, and utilities, as well as housing re-entry, which includes deposits and temporary storage.
“One big difference is that this money will go directly to the mortgage company or rental agency or the utility, and not to the individual,” said Health and Human Services Director Joyce Bishop. “The goal is to prevent evictions and foreclosures.”
Residents who have been impacted by Coronavirus and have experienced unemployment or underemployment may receive any of the following forms of assistance:
Households with pending evictions will be prioritized. As the goal of the program is to prevent evictions and foreclosures, assistance will not be provided to those who are only requesting utility assistance unless they have received a shut-off notice.
Applications are currently being accepted until December 1 or until all funds are expended, whichever comes first.
Residents can begin the application process by visiting www.flaglercares.org to request an application, or review the instructions to receive a paper application. Questions should be submitted to the Flagler Cares community health associate via email to email@example.com, or by voicemail to 386-569-3314.
