PARKLAND, FL- For Parkland and Broward residents that are struggling financially this season, there are two new helpful opportunities available; one for businesses and one for personal mortgages.

According to the Broward County website, on Friday, October 23, "the County Commission is establishing a grant program using CARES Act funds for small businesses and non-profits in Broward County to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.  The Broward County CARES Act Small Business and Non-Profit Assistance Grant Program is designed to aid small businesses with 20 employees or less and non-profits with 25 employees or less."

The other financial assistance program is for personal mortgages. The purpose of the Parkland Mortgage Assistance Program, according to the city, is "to provide short term, limited mortgage assistance to eligible residents of the City of Parkland with a homesteaded home who have experienced a loss or reduction of employment income due to COVID-19. Assistance is made on a case-by-case basis, is dependent on the volume of applications received, and is up to the sole discretion of the City of Parkland. Property taxes, homeowners insurance, mortgage insurance, and any other items collected via the mortgage escrow are not eligible to be paid through the program.  Payments are made directly to the grant recipient's financial institution."

For more information or to apply to the Mortgage Assistance Program, please apply here.

Both programs are based on availability of funds, so applicants are encouraged to apply right away.
