If your current financial hardship is due to the current pandemic, Miami-Dade County has partnered with United Way of Miami-Dade to create the local Pandemic Assistance Program. Applicants are eligible for up to $2,000 per household.
According to the Miami-Dade County website:
“The Miami-Dade Pandemic Assistance Program has been established to address the short-term economic disruptions on working families in Miami-Dade County by providing hardship assistance. Funding for this program is provided by Miami-Dade County as a part of the federal CARES Act relief provided to the state of Florida.”

Once you complete the form, which is estimated to take approximately 30 minutes, a community representative will assess your eligibility.
