TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR HIS DESIGNEE TO CONDUCT FEASIBILITY STUDY ON CREATION OF A FINANCIAL HELP CENTER TO SUNSET IN ONE (1) YEAR

BODY
WHEREAS, we are currently experiencing an economic crisis, the likes of which, many residents of this County have never encountered; and
WHEREAS, there has been a lack of communication between the financial institutions and many of the residents of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, many residents are unaware of financial assistance, legal counseling or other remedial measures of great benefit during this unsettling economic time; and
WHEREAS, the local government may be able to provide assistance to its residents by providing them with information regarding financial and legal assistance; and
WHEREAS, it is extremely important that the government do everything in its power to help the residents of Miami-Dade County,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Mayor or his designee is directed to conduct a feasibility study and report its findings within 30 days on the creation of a Financial Help Center to: (i) establish a single location for Miami-Dade County residents to receive financial and legal counseling, and information on public benefits, tax credits and other financial services; (ii) direct residents to a qualified pool of financial institutions which could provide the services identified in clause (i); and (iii) identify financial, tax, accounting, and legal entities which may be interested in participating in the Financial Help Center. The Financial Help Center would sunset one (1) year from the date of this resolution.
