OUR Florida is Florida’s federally-funding emergency rental assistance program that remits payments to eligible Floridians who have fallen behind on rent and utility bills.
This interactive OUR Florida Virtual Session will walk through what you need to know about the program and equip you with the necessary knowledge to help spread the word and ensure eligible Floridians who need help are applying.
Bring your questions and unique perspectives to this immersive time where FPP Coalition members and partners will learn with and from each other!
