Your home (single-family, townhome, twinhome, or condominium) must be within City boundaries.
Open your web browser and type: https://www.miamidade.gov/pa/property_search.asp. Click on the Property Search button, type in the home address, and press the search button. If your property is in the boundaries of the City of Miami, the folio number will begin with "01". If your folio number does not begin with “01,” you are not eligible for this program.
Check on the same screen for your home’s assessed value. The assessed value must be no more than $400,000. If the assessed value is higher than that amount, you are not eligible for this program.
After the application period closes, a computerized lottery will be held at Miami City Hall to assign random numbers to the applications for this program, in order to establish a waitlist setting the numerical order in which the applicants will be processed. The lottery waitlist (coded) will subsequently be posted on this web page. Applicants DO NOT have to attend the lottery.
Applying for the program, and or placement on the program waitlist, does not guarantee eligibility or assistance.
Applicants will be contacted from the waitlist in numerical order. When they are contacted, an appointment will be scheduled with the homeowner so that an inspector can visit the home and make an initial assessment of eligible needs. If the property passes the initial assessment, the applicant will be asked to submit ALL the required documentation noted on the Steps to Follow flyer (page 2), along with a COVID release.
If you comply with the above, all costs, repairs, timing, and repayments will be explained to you.
