CFO Sink LAUNCHES ‘florida housing help’ web site
November 7, 2008
TALLAHASSEE — To provide immediate assistance to Florida homeowners searching for federal housing assistance, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink and her Financial Action Team (FACT Team) today announced the launch of “Florida Housing Help,” a new Web feature that can be found at www.MyFloridaCFO.com.
“Florida Housing Help” offers extensive resources for homeowners, veterans, local governments and taxpayers who could potentially benefit from the recently-passed Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA).
“From veterans to new homeowners, millions of Floridians stand to benefit from the federal HERA legislation designed help Americans weather the current housing crisis,” said CFO Sink, who oversees the Department of Financial Services. “We launched “Florida Housing Help” to help Floridians better understand the federal resources available to them. Ultimately, we hope this initiative will bring more federal dollars to our state.”
In July, Congress passed and the President signed into law the HERA legislation. CFO Sink created her FACT Team, comprising stakeholders and financial and housing experts, to identify the funds available to Floridians and also to educate homeowners about how to take advantage of these resources. “Florida Housing Help” is an online tool so consumers can better understand the legislation and easily access the information that the FACT Team has researched and made available.
“Florida Housing Help” will be updated on an ongoing basis as additional information and sources of help become available. For further assistance, Floridians are encouraged to contact CFO Sink’s Consumer Helpline at 1-877-MY-FL-CFO (693-5236).
As a statewide elected officer of the Florida Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink oversees the Department of Financial Services, a multi-division state agency responsible for management of state funds and unclaimed property, assisting consumers who request information and help related to financial services, and investigating financial fraud. CFO Sink also serves as the State Fire Marshal.
