The city of Jacksonville is making more than $4 million in federal funds available to Duval County residents who haven’t been able to pay their mortgage due to a loss of income related to COVID-19.
The Mortgage Relief Program will provide up to six months of payments or $7,5000, whichever is less.
Residents applying for aid must be the owner and occupant of the property. Payments will be made directly to the mortgage company.
Federal guidelines require recipients to fall below 80% of the area’s median income, which is outlined below:
Household size Total Income
One person $42,000
Two people $48,000
Three people $54,000
Four people $60,000
Five people $64,800
Six people $69,600
Seven people $74,400
Eight people $79,200
Applicants will be required to provide proof of mortgage delinquency and a W-9 form from their lender.
The Mortgage Relief Program will start accepting applications at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 31. The federal funds will be distributed by Jacksonville’s Housing and Community Development Division.
The city is encouraging those who are interested to create a MyJax account before applying. The same website and account will be used during the application process.
To create a MyJax account, go to MyJax.custhelp.com.
Grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
