Rental assistance update: Money coming soon to strapped tenants and landlords.

Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties are finalizing details of how they plan to dole out millions of dollars to help prevent the eviction of thousands of renters who fell behind on their payments because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The counties plan to begin accepting applications and making payments within the next few weeks. 

A spokesman for Gov. Ron DeSantis, meanwhile, said the state will distribute $871 million through the Department of Children and Families instead of the 119 local governments that last year distributed $135 million in rent and mortgage assistance to more than 32,250 Florida households.
