The Rental Eviction Prevention and Foreclosure Prevention programs are designed to assist Davie residents with a maximum award of up to $13,000 to cover up to six months of payment(s). To qualify for this program, applicants must reside in the Town of Davie and be able to document that they were unable to pay strictly due to temporary loss of income, reduction in hours, or unemployment exclusively as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until March 1, 2021, or until funds are expended. Assistance will only be provided for rents and mortgages past due as of April 1, 2020, and onward.
If you have previously received a total of six months of assistance through any Town of Davie Rental Eviction/Foreclosure Prevention Programs, you are ineligible for this program. However, if you have received less than six months of assistance, you may qualify for further aid.
The program applications are available on the Town website at www.davie-fl.gov/606/Community-Services. Hard copies of the application can be picked up outside the Town of Davie’s Community Services Division (CSD) office located at 4700 SW 64 Avenue Suite D, Davie, FL 33314.
