The city is continuing to offer rental assistance to residents impacted with a financial hardship due to the pandemic. The city was awarded an additional $599,913 in Community Development Block Grant funds as part of the federal CARES Act.

Rental assistance is provided on a first-completed application and first qualified/eligible basis, and is for rental housing costs that incurred on or after March 11, 2020. These funds provide rental assistance to eligible households for a three-month maximum per household. Applications are being accepted until the funds are depleted.

Daytona Beach residents that previously received rental assistance and continue to experience a COVID-19 pandemic financial hardship, may still qualify and be eligible for additional assistance.

The applicant’s annual household income must be at or below the Area Median Income Level (chart below). Household is defined as the family occupying a specific residence.
