Outreach Program available to help renters as a result of Covid-related circumstances

Eviction Notice
Eviction Notice

With the eviction moratorium lifted, the struggle will intensify for those in need in our community.

Indian River County Commissioner Laura Moss is coordinating an Outreach Program designed to help people pay their late rent as a result of COVID-19 related circumstances.

“If we can help before they receive an eviction notice, they avoid the court system entirely,” Moss told Sebastian Daily

We have Outreach Events planned as follows:

  • Sebastian City Hall Thursday, 09/23 4-7 PM
  • Fellsmere City Hall Tuesday, 09/28 5-8 PM
  • Vero Beach Main Library (Pelican Room – second floor) Thursday, 09/30 10 AM-1 PM
  • Wabasso location TBD

The purpose of the Outreach events is to provide one-on-one assistance with applications for this federal funding (CARES) to qualifying households. Florida Rural Legal Services (FRLS) will be on-site. We hope to help people who are late in paying their rent as a result of Covid-related circumstances. 

Households may receive up to $10,500. Judge Menz attempts to help people after an eviction notice has been issued. It is a two-pronged approach.

Visit one of the Outreach events to learn more.
