Homeowner Assistance Fund
The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) is a new federal program to help homeowners experiencing a financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 catch up on mortgage and utility bills and pay other housing costs. States will administer a total of $9.961 billion, subject to guidance the Treasury Department made available the HAF program website.
A summary of the HAF is available here.
NCSHA was the primary advocate for the program, working with members of Congress for a year to design the program. On March 12, NCSHA sent Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen recommendations for how to operationalize it efficiently and effectively.
