Financial Assistance - Notice of Funding Availability

Palm Beach County Department of Housing and Economic Sustainability hereby announce the availability of Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus funds (CDBG-CV) to provide financial assistance to income eligible households, impacted by COVID19, who are delinquent in their first mortgage and escrow payments (PITI). Additionally, funding may assist with second mortgages, late fees, condominium and homeowners' association payments, special assessments, and other mortgage associated costs related to COVID-19.



Until further notice, based on the most recent recommendations of the CDC citing individuals who are fully vaccinated may go without a mask inside buildings and in consultation with the Director of the Florida Department of Health for Palm Beach County, effective Tuesday, May 18, 2021, all fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask inside County buildings. Fully vaccinated equates to a person receiving both shots of Moderna or Pfizer and beyond the 14 day incubation period after the second shot or the J&J one shot vaccine beyond the 14 day incubation period. However, the CDC further recommends that individuals who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks indoors and in large crowds. Masks will continue to be worn on all public transit (buses, planes and trains) transportation hubs in accordance with federal policy and all other exemptions per the CDC.

County Property includes all County-owned and County-leased buildings where Palm Beach County's offices, divisions, and departments conduct business. Constitutional Offices that operate in County Buildings should be contacted regarding their individual mask policy.

Summit Lake and Coronavirus

Summit Lake Board of Directors is monitoring the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus and its impact on community associations.

We are encouraging all members to follow the latest guidance and updates issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Summit Lake Board of Directors understands that homeowners and residents may have questions about prevention and containment efforts.

It is important to recognize that the homeowners association Directors and its management company are not health care professionals. The CDC and other qualified health officials should continue to be the primary source of current information and guidance.

Summit Lake HOA is offering general, precautionary guidance from officials and adding some common-sense guidelines for our community.

At the end of the day, residents are most responsible for their own health and safety. That’s because most all of the tips to prevent illness recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are individual responsibility.

Common areas, playgrounds and pool house. The association controls the common areas to include the two playgrounds and pool house. However, there are limits on what a community association can do to fight illnesses. If the virus becomes community widespread, the following considerations may be taken:

  • Extensive cleaning, disinfecting, or wiping down of pool house and playgrounds

  • Public common areas, such as the pool and playgrounds, may need to be temporarily closed.

  • Installing hand sanitizer dispensers or wipes on common areas for owner and guest use. **There is currently a shortage of these supplies**

Recognize that any such upgrades could be prohibitively expensive and at present, there is nothing to suggest this would help stem the spread of Coronavirus.

For now, our general message is residents should avoid using the playground and pool facility as Summit Lake does not have maintenance or a groundskeeper on the property to keep up with any cleaning and/or disinfecting efforts. Keep in mind that Summit Lake is a non-gated community with limited resources to monitor areas for contamination.
