Lake County allocates additional CARES funds for resident assistance

RELEASE DATE: October 6, 2020

Tavares – On September 29, 2020, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners voted to allocate $15 million in CARES Act funding for resident assistance. Eligible Lake County residents who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 may receive up to $4,000 in rent or mortgage assistance as a reimbursement of funds already expended or as a direct payment to a landlord or lender for past due balances. Lake County anticipates the application cycle will open in mid-October 2020. Interested applicants can preregister to be notified about the program criteria, required documents and the opening of the application cycle by visiting https://lakecountyfl.submittable.com/submit. Qualified applicants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served, first-qualified basis while funds last.
