Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (HBCRA) creates Federal Employee Assistance Program to help workers impacted by shutdown
As integral members of our community, the Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency wants you to know that we are here to assist as best we can to help you through these trying times. City residents who have not been getting paid due to the partial government shutdown may apply to defer HBCRA loan payments until the federal government reopens and they receive their backpay.
As part of the Federal Employee Assistance Program created by the City, federal employees will be required to provide a copy of their federal identification and a letter from the federal government indicating furlough status. Payments for their HBCRA loan will be deferred until the government reopens and issues backpay, at which time the customer will be required to make their payment in full or make a payment arrangement. All late fees will be waived and non-payment will not be referred to collections for these customers during the deferment period.
Residents requesting the deferment may visit the HBCRA office at City Hall, contact the office at (954) 457-2228, or apply online by clicking below.
