Lee County plans to help people hit by the pandemic stay on their feet.
The county wants to distribute more than $23 million to struggling families who pay rent in Lee County and are having money troubles because of the pandemic. The county’s goal is to help people get back to normal as much as possible.
The proposed relief plan will include 12 months of rent and utilities paid for those who qualify, with the possibility to extend it, if needed.
The details are not yet final.
Lee County commissioners plan to announce the plan on Feb. 16
