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.

Tens of thousands of Jacksonville residents could be getting financial relief soon in the form of a stimulus check if the City Council passes legislation that will be filed by Mayor Lenny Curry’s office Friday.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. will pay $4 billion to consumers who were hurt by faulty mortgage underwriting, part of a larger $13 billion deal to settle the bank's liability in the collapse of toxic securities during the housing crisis.

The deal is expected to be announced this week.

Storms, foreclosures, and the Jaguars are in the headlines today.
