The City of Daytona Beach is expanding its COVID-19 Assistance Recovery Effort program, also known as CARE, by offering rental assistance to income-eligible residents. The rental assistance program is intended to provide financial relief to Daytona Beach residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and to help ensure stability for low-to-moderate income residents who have been furloughed, lost employment or have had work hours reduced. Appointments must be made to submit completed applications and provide documentation. Beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, May 8, appointments can be made by calling Central Florida Community Development Corporation at (386) 226-1216 or Mid-Florida Housing Partnership Corporation at (386) 274-4441, ext. 301 and 304.
The program has limited funds available and applications will be accepted until the funds have been depleted. Assistance will be provided on a first-complete application and first qualified/eligible basis, and is for rental housing costs incurred on or after March 1. Applicants must not have been in delinquency status prior to March 11.
Assistance includes rental payments, with a two-month maximum assistance per household. Maximum assistance is capped at $1,500 per month and $3,000 total per household. Assistance payments will only be made to the property landlord or rental property management companies.
The one-time assistance does not have to be repaid. The $619,500 program is being funded through the city’s allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) federal funds and specific CDBG-COVID-19 funding expected to be received later this summer.
