The City of West Palm Beach Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) department works to connect West Palm Beach residents and businesses to housing, social, and economic opportunities.
Due to the hardships many are facing due to recent impacts of COVID-19, Mayor Keith A. James and the City’s HCD department have established the COVID-19 Rental Eviction Protection Program to be administered by the City’s HCD department.
The COVID-19 Rental Eviction Protection Program was created to assist eligible City of West Palm Beach households with temporary rental assistance to avoid displacement due to a loss of income as a direct result of COVID-19. The assistance is limited to a one-time payment equal to a maximum of 2 months’ rent. Applicants must be able to evidence loss of income due to COVID-19 and have no other available resources. They must not have utilized any other services for the timeframe of payment request.
For additional information, please visit the City's Housing and Community Development Department or call (561) 822-1250.
