Miami-Dade approves $10M emergency rent relief program

Miami-Dade County approved a $10 million rent relief fund for families impacted by the pandemic.

The county commission voted to pass the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which will provide a one-time payment to eligible renters. Families can apply beginning on Tuesday and ending Friday, July 17, according to a press release.

To qualify, a renter’s household income cannot exceed 80 percent of the area median income, as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Eighty percent of the AMI for a one-person household is $51,200, or $58,500 for a two-person household. Applicants also have to provide a copy of their executed lease, and certify that the household does not receive any other rental subsidy, including Section 8 housing vouchers, tenant-based rental assistance and HOME subsidies.
