Homeowners Invited to Informational Fair about HomeSafe

Hosted by HomeSafe Georgia and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA), in partnership with The City of Atlanta, homeowners who owe more than their home is worth or are behind on their mortgage payments should attend the informational fair Nov. 19 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center (110 Hilliard St SE, Atlanta, GA 30312) from 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. 

The free event will connect homeowners with HomeSafe representatives from DCA who can answer questions or offer advice on the application determining eligibility for up to $50,000 in mortgage assistance. 

“This program was developed to provide assistance for Georgians, who have faced unfortunate circumstances, to remain in their homes,” said Tonya Curry, deputy housing commissioner for the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, which oversees the HomeSafe Georgia program. HomeSafe Georgia has assisted over 15,000 homeowners to date. 

“The Georgia Department of Community Affairs is committed to helping build strong vibrant communities, and this is one of the many ways we accomplish this,” said Curry.

Applications will be available for those interested in starting one on-site, at home or online. Homeowners should bring a copy of mortgage statements, most recent tax return and driver’s license. No new applications will be taken after Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Email homesafe@dca.ga.gov for more information.
