Landlords Can Refer Tenants to Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Updated: Jan 13, 2022
Effective Nov. 13, the Miami-Dade Police Department has resumed enforcement of evictions in all cases filed on or before March 12, 2020.
Renters facing eviction may qualify for protection by filing with the court a CDC declaration for a temporary halt in evictions, available in English, Spanish, and Creole. Renters may also obtain a copy of the CDC declaration from any Miami-Dade branch library or Miami-Dade County Community Action Center.
