In the United States, there are many kinds of financial help for people who need it most. The Emergency Rental Assistance Program sends money through stimulus checks to residents who lost some form of income because of the past COVID-19 pandemic. This program has more than $3 million to disburse to all eligible applicants.
Therefore, the program has distributed more than $62 million since its inception in March 2021. This means that the money sent by this program has helped a large number of families who have needed some financial help. But in order to qualify for these stimulus checks, all requirements must be met. Otherwise we will never receive these payments in our bank account.
In order to get one of these stimulus checks, we have to send in the application by 5 p.m. today. There is still time to do so, but remember that today is the last day.
Chiquita Moore, the Director of Operations for the City of Jacksonville Neighborhoods Department, stated that “The money is on a first come, first served basis, but priority will be given to those with incomes at or below 50% AMI (median income), those with at least one household member who has been unemployed for 90 days or more, and pending evictions.”
What is this stimulus check money awarded for?
Any of the families eligible to receive this stimulus check will get help for up to 12 months. During the time they receive this financial help they will be able to pay rent, back bills and any other related expenses.
In order to receive this stimulus check, families must be considered eligible. To reach the label of eligible for these checks, the family must have an income below 80% of the median income. In this regard, homes with 50% of median income in the area have priority. Likewise, the stimulus checks will also have priority for those persons who have been unemployed for at least 90 days.
Thanks to this financial help, families in Jacksonville, Florida will be able to enjoy a stimulus check to pay their bills. This is a great help for many of these families.
Remember that if you do not meet the requirements, you will not be able to apply for this stimulus check. Even so, you can still start the application process, as you could eventually get it. All citizens of Jacksonville, Florida, have until this afternoon to apply for the check, although it will take some time for the program to accept all of these checks.
Once the application process starts you just have to wait to receive it, so you can’t count on the money automatically.
