Residents,

Wilson Management Group would like to share with you two new sources for Covid-19 related financial rental assistance as these have just become available from both Orange and Seminole Counties. It is our desire to pass along to you any information we can that might be of assistance to you in these uncertain times.

Orange County
The Orange County Board of County Commissioners created the Orange County COVID-19 Eviction Diversion Program. This is a $20 million, income-based program funded by the Federal CARES Act to which the tenant and the landlord must both agree after an applicant has been approved. The portal for tenants to apply for this program opened Tuesday, Aug. 25. For general questions about the program, the Orange County Government page for Covid 19 Eviction Diversion Program points to the following number: 407-836-3111.
