The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded the Northeast Florida Community Action Agency, Inc. (NFCAA) an estimated $5 million dollars in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to assist the agency's COVID-19 pandemic response efforts.
NFCAA will begin accepting applications on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 for several programs designed to assist residents and households with rent, utility payments and self-sufficiency programs resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak. Individuals or households residing in NFCAA's seven county areas (Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and St. Johns) who meet the program criteria can apply.
"We are honored to receive these additional funds to help as many residents in Northeast Florida as possible during this challenging time," said Kimberly Cobb Ray, NFCAA's Executive Director. "We recognize that some individuals that have never needed to seek assistance before might be facing hardships. We encourage families to reach out to NFCAA and see if they qualify for any of our services."
