CARES Act assistance programs extended



The deadline to apply for Broward County CARES Act rental, small business or non-profit assistance has been extended through Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 10 p.m.

Broward’s Family Success Administration Division will continue to process rental assistance applications and will disburse so long as funds are available. The program provides between 60 percent and 75 percent of assistance to qualified residents for unpaid rents between April and December.

Significant documentation is required and should be gathered prior to beginning the online application process, which must be completed in one sitting. Successful submission of an application is not a guarantee of funding. After processing is complete, applicants will be notified via email if they are eligible.

The Office of Economic and Small Business Development is encouraging small businesses and non-profit organizations to apply for the CARES Act grants and has made the following changes to the eligibility criteria to allow more businesses to apply: businesses with revenues up to $2 million and businesses who received prior funding from PPP, EIDL, and FL State Bridge Loan up to $100K are now eligible to apply.

The County also resumed offering free technical assistance for businesses and non-profits to help them understand the application eligibility criteria and documents required. Visit to schedule an appointment.

The business and non-profit programs will continue to award grants in the amounts of $5,000, $10,000 and $15,000. The grants can only be used for costs incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are designed to aid small businesses with 20 employees or less and non-profits with 25 employees or less.

Visit for eligibility, application requirements and to apply for rental, business or non-profit assistance. Online applications will only be accepted. Applicants who have already applied, do not need to apply again. For more information, call 954-831-2380.
