Rental and Mortgage Assistance

This program is also a response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and may assist those tenants and homeowners with a loss of income due to the Pandemic with either past or current rent/mortgage payments. Payments are made directly to the landlord or mortgage holder.

State of Florida Executive Orders - COVID-19

  • EO 20-93 requires improvement of the DEO’s Reemployment Assistance Program.
  • EO 20-94 is a moratorium on foreclosures and evictions (for failure to pay rent) for 45 days.  This order does not relieve an individual from their payment obligation, it just pauses any action toward eviction or foreclosure.

If a Floridian’s employment has been negatively impacted as a result of the mitigation efforts in Florida to stop the spread of COVID-19, they may be eligible to receive Reemployment Assistance.


Individuals who may be eligible for Reemployment Assistance may include:


• Those who are quarantined by a medical professional or a government agency, 

• Those who are laid off or sent home without pay for an extended period by their employer due to COVID-19 concerns, or

• Those who are caring for an immediate family member who is diagnosed with COVID-19.

Individuals whose employment has been impacted, but are still receiving wages through paid leave are not eligible to receive Reemployment Assistance. 

At this time, individuals who apply for Reemployment Assistance whose employment was negatively impacted as a result of COVID-19 will follow the same application, review and payment process as all applicants for Reemployment Assistance in Florida.


We encourage any Floridian whose employment has been negatively impacted as a result of COVID-19 to visit www.floridajobs.org  and click on Reemployment Assistance Service Center to learn more about the program and watch a short video on how to apply.
