Executive Orders Issued to help with Reemployment (Unemployment) Assistance and Mortgage Foreclosure & Eviction Relief

Post Date:04/03/2020 4:51 PM

On April 2nd, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis issued two Executive Orders.

The first, Executive Order Number 20-93: Reemployment Assistance Program, enables the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) to respond to the increased demands the spread of COVID-19 has caused. Under the Order, the DEO is directed to immediately procure the additional capacity, software, technology, and other resources necessary to ensure the state’s reemployment assistance, call center, website, and staff can accommodate the increasing volume of applicants and inquiries. The DEO shall pursue new or alternative methods for receiving applications, including making paper applications readily available on the DEO website and at local workforce development boards, including CareerSource Brevard locally. In the Order, the Governor also directed the DEO to establish a system through which applications may be efficiently and securely submitted for organized processing and review. Executive Order 20-93 will be in effect until the expiration of Executive Order 20-52: COVID-19 Public Health Emergency and its extensions.

The second, Executive Order Number 20-94: Mortgage Foreclosure and Eviction Relief, acknowledges the hardship that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on many Floridians with single-family mortgages to make their mortgage payments and with residential tenancies to make their rent payments. The Order will suspend mortgage foreclosure and eviction cause of action under Florida law to provide targeted, temporary relief to Floridians. Executive Order 20-94 will be effective for 45 days.
