As Broward County residents become acclimated to life in Phase 3, the County released Emergency Order 20-27 to clarify local requirements.

The County’s Emergency Order includes the following key points:

• On-premise consumption of food and alcohol must end at 11 pm.
• Restaurants may operate at up to 100% of indoor capacity as long as there is a minimum of six feet between tables, and no more than six people at a table.

• Total combined occupancy of indoor and outdoor areas shall not exceed the existing total maximum occupancy.

Residential Assistance Programs
The City is introducing two new grant programs to assist residents.

The Emergency Repair Grant program will provide emergency repair assistance to homeowners experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Funds can be used for emergency repairs to the roof or any other component that an inspector deems necessary. Projects are reviewed and awarded on a case-by-case basis.

Thanks to a partnership with T-Mobile, the City is launching The Connectivity and Technology for Employment Support program, designed to offer two years of connectivity technology to residents impacted by COVID-19. This program will support job and employment searches.

The application window for both programs opens on October 13. To apply or for additional information, visit www.tamarac.org/housing.
