The training sessions and partnerships with local nonprofit organizations are meant to spread information to help residents apply before the CDC eviction memorandum expires on July 31. The sessions will be held on July 28 at 2 p.m.
“We are asking local nonprofits to help us reach those facing eviction,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings. “I encourage all those that wish to be a part of the solution to participate in the virtual training session and engage with your clients to make sure they know resources are available.”
