To end generational poverty by empowering Central Floridians to achieve social and economic equality through education, employment and entrepreneurship.
NewsThe Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is providing state and federal resources to communities, businesses and Floridians. In coordination with state and federal partners, resources are available to assist employers and individuals impacted by the state’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Governor DeSantis also has filed emergency legislation and regulations to provide further support to Floridians during this time. To assist small businesses and their employees, loans and short-time compensation programs to bridge the gap are available. To assist individuals, resources including Reemployment Assistance are available. Additionally, on Friday, March 29, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law, which will expand Reemployment Assistance benefits. Changes are being incorporated into program resource guides and additional information will be made available as we receive guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor.
