In May 2022, the Broward County Commission received an additional $22 million in funding from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), in an initiative that enables local governments to allocate emergency funding to residents who are suffering financially during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are behind on your rent or utilities, or unable to pay your current rent, the ERAP can help. Also, if your rent has increased and this increase will cause a hardship, we can now provide three months of rental assistance.
