Renters Have Rights!
As rents continue to increase in South Florida, the County has launched a
new website to help tenants understand their rights under Florida law. The website provides a one-stop-shop with resources for renters including access to the new
Tenant Bill of Rights which landlords are required to distribute to all new renters. The website also addresses concerns regarding tenant/landlord issues, termination notices, lease renewals and evictions.
Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) enhancements
The County has temporarily closed the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) application portal to provide time to review and process previously submitted applications.
The County is implementing a series of program enhancements to accelerate the processing of applications received by the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) and get faster financial assistance to tenants and landlords who have suffered economic hardship due to COVID-19.
The following improvements will be made:
The processing of applications, previously outsourced, will be handled by Broward County's Human Services Department, Family Success Division. A "strike team" of knowledgeable and experienced staff has been assembled to lead this effort.
The Information Hotline, also previously outsourced, will now be handled by Broward County's Call Center and will be open Monday through Friday, from 8:30AM to 5PM. Additional call center specialists have been added to assist with questions. The new phone number is 954-831-ERAP (3727).
The online application portal, powered by Neighborly, has not changed. However, going forward, the portal will periodically open and close to facilitate the timely processing of applications received. To check on the status of portal openings and closings, visit
Even when the portal is closed to new applications, previous applicants who are already working with a case manager will be permitted to upload missing or supplemental documents to the portal as requested, to keep their application moving through the approval process.
The number of intake centers offering in-person assistance with applications and documentation has increased from two to four. Assistance is available at each of the County's Family Success Centers, located in Coral Springs, Hollywood/West Park, Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach. Appointments and facial coverings are required.
