BEHIND ON YOUR MORTGAGE? FLORIDA’S HARDEST HIT FUND CAN HELP

The Florida Hardest-Hit Fund (HHF) program aims to assist qualified Florida homeowners by providing mortgage assistance for up to 12 months (capped at $24,000), or until the homeowner finds adequate employment to resume paying the mortgage (whichever comes first), with up to $18,000 available to reinstate a delinquent first mortgage prior to payments being made. Additionally, for a homeowner who is recovering from unemployment/underemployment, up to $25,000 is available as a one-time payment to reinstate a delinquent first mortgage. HHF assistance is paid directly to the loan servicer/lender for those homeowners deemed eligible to participate in the program. 

To find out if you qualify for assistance, please visit the HHF official website at www.FLHardestHitHelp.org to review eligibility criteria. For further details, contact the Hardest-Hit Toll-Free Information line at 1-(877) 863-5244, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

NORTH MIAMI’S FALSE ALARM REDUCTION PROGRAM

Annual Registration is Required for all Security Alarms
North Miami’s False Alarm Reduction Program aims and the police responses each requires. In recent years, false alarms account for approximately 98% of all alarm calls. Such false alarms divert law enforcement resources from crimes in progress, other emergency situations and time spent patrolling assigned areas. North Miami residents and businesses are required to register their alarm systems annually. The cost to register an alarm is $25 per year.

 Excessive repeated false alarms (six or more in a year) may result in suspension of response, which means North Miami Police will no longer respond to alarm calls at that location. Proof will then have to be provided to the police that the alarm has been fixed and was tested.

 For more information about the false alarm program or to register your alarm system, please call the North Miami Police Department Alarm Administrator at (305) 891-0294 ext. 23134 or visit www.northmiamifl.gov or www.crywolf.us/northmiamifl.
