After completing several outreach activities in your area, we learned of some common concerns and questions in reference to HUD programs, processes and opportunities. In response, the HUD Jacksonville Office of Field Policy and Management (FPM) is currently working with our partners to expand information regarding programs to benefit the community. Additionally, our job is to support the needs of our stakeholders and make a positive impact in the communities we serve. It is important that we provide our local collaborative partners and HUD customers with the tools and resources necessary for successful communities.
In line with HUD’s 2020 Strategic Plan, FPM is planning to convene several comprehensive training/information sharing sessions in various cities throughout Northeast, Northwest and Central Florida. Our goal is to deliver six (6) 1/2-day Information Sharing Events in Daytona, Gainesville, Ocala, Panama City, Sarasota and Pensacola Florida.
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.
The Call Center from the Florida Department of Health is now available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

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.
