Rental Assistance Program

Our Rental Assistance Program was a testament to our commitment to our residents during challenging times. With rising rental rates, we set aside a significant fund of over $1 million to provide immediate assistance. This program was designed to alleviate financial stress for those in need, ensuring they could maintain stable living conditions in adversity. We believe everyone deserves a secure place to call home, and our Rental Assistance Program worked tirelessly to make this belief a reality.

This program has concluded. For information on future programs, please sign up for our e-newsletter.

Façade Improvement Program

Discover the SEOPW CRA's community-focused Façade Beautification and Work Training Program, dedicated to revitalizing Overtown. This initiative enhances the appearance of existing residential, mixed-use, and commercial buildings with exterior painting, repairs, and prep work. Not only does it boost street walkability and residents' quality of life, but it also strengthens community pride. Join us in exploring how this program is restoring Overtown's identity, starting with hands-on training at the historic Overtown Performing Arts Center (OPAC).


We’re thrilled to announce that we’re providing free Tri-Rail passes to qualified residents within the SEOPW CRA boundaries. This program is income-based. For more information, please call us at 305-679-6800 or e-mail us at cra@miamigov.com
