The City of Tamarac continues with its fourth round of the Residential Assistance Program for residents financially impacted by Covid-19.
Applicants must be Tamarac residents who can document income hardships due to Covid-19 and must belong to households that do not exceed 120 percent of the area median income.
If they qualify, residents can receive up to six months of assistance with eligible expenses such as mortgage payments, rent, and utilities such as light, water, and natural gas.
According to the city, residents submitting incomplete applications will not be considered, they must have a verifiable and documented income hardship as a direct result of COVID-19.
The funds are awarded as grants, and the checks are sent directly to landlords, mortgage lenders, and/or utility providers, and HOA late fees and re-housing costs are included in the grant.
According to the city, staff continues to process the second and third round applications for the Residential Assistance Program.
Applications must be received by December 4 and be processed on a first-come, first-ready, first-serve basis, and will remain open until funds are expended. Visit www.Tamarac.org/Housing to apply.
