Lauderhill, Florida – The City of Lauderhill has formally initiated its ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) Housing and Utility Assistance Program, inviting eligible residents to apply.
This program is designed to offer a singular emergency relief to individuals struggling with pending rent, mortgage, or utility payments. The overarching aim is to counter the threats of evictions, stave off foreclosures, and prevent interruptions in utility services, particularly for those most impacted by the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The application process is strictly limited to Lauderhill residents and will operate on a principle of first come, first served, and based on the completeness of the application.
Reiterating its commitment, the city aspires to extend support to a broad spectrum of households, prioritizing those yet to receive any form of assistance.
Given the overwhelming demand juxtaposed against limited resources, the city has resolved not to revisit applications once they’ve been approved.
Recognizing the intricacies of the application process and the potential challenges it might pose, the City of Lauderhill has joined forces with the Housing Foundation of America. This collaborative endeavor seeks to provide residents with clear insights into the application process, from deciphering eligibility requisites to assembling essential documentation. Residents in need of additional support, or those without computer access, can directly solicit assistance.
To arrange an in-person consultation with an application specialist or to inquire further, one can contact (954) 923-5001.
While the city is currently processing applications, it is noteworthy that the program’s longevity is contingent upon the available funds. Therefore, Lauderhill residents are advised to expedite their application submissions to maximize their chances of obtaining assistance.
