With the lifting of the moratorium on evictions, the fight will intensify for those in need in our community.
Indian River County Commissioner Laura Moss is coordinating an awareness program designed to help people pay their rent late due to circumstances related to COVID-19.
“If we can help before they get an eviction notice, they bypass the court system altogether,” Moss said. Sebastian Daily.
We have planned awareness events as follows:
- Sebastian City Hall Thursday 09/23 / 4-7pm
- Fellsmere Town Hall Tuesday September 28 5-8 p.m.
- Vero Beach Main Library (Pelican Room – Second Floor) Thursday 09/30 10 am-1pm
- Wabasso location to be determined
The purpose of outreach events is to provide one-on-one assistance with applications for this Federal Funding (CARES) to eligible households. Florida Rural Legal Services (FRLS) will be on-site. We hope to help people who are late in paying their rent due to circumstances related to Covid.
Households can receive up to $ 10,500. Justice Menz tries to help people after an eviction notice is issued. It’s a two-pronged approach.
