In an effort to connect residents to resources that may help them recover from financial impacts of COVID-19 – and in advance of the moratorium on evictions expected to expire at the end of July – the City of Orlando is hosting several educational sessions about the Rental Assistance Program, which can help City of Orlando households impacted by COVID-19 get current on up to 12 months of unpaid rent.

Households with incomes below 80% of the area median income ($61,050 for a family of four) are eligible with priority given to households with incomes less than 50% of the area median income ($38,150 for a family of four) and to households with one or more members that have been unemployed for at least 90 days. For more information, a list of all program guidelines and eligibility requirements and to begin an application, residents can visit Orlando.gov/assistance.  

In partnership with its partners KPMG and Indelible, the city is offering a number of opportunities for residents to learn more about the Rental Assistance Program, including:  

In-Person Informational Sessions – Flyer for Rental Assistance Events Each session will include a brief overview of the program and an opportunity for residents to ask one-on-one questions about program guidelines, eligibility requirements and have access to tablets and scanners to complete the application and upload any necessary supporting documentation.

If a resident would like to complete the application on-site using the tablets and scanners available, they should gather and bring everything needed to complete an application. A full list of documentation needed can be found here.

Residents can register for one of the information sessions at Orlando.gov/assistance under “upcoming events.”
