US Treasury Department allocated $9.9 billion to states and territories through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) was established to mitigate financial hardships associated with the coronavirus pandemic by providing funds for the purpose of preventing homeowner mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities, and displacements of homeowners experiencing financial hardship after January 21, 2020.
Georgia’s allocation was $354M. The Department of Community Affairs will administer Georgia’s HAF program as Georgia Mortgage Assistance.
Georgia homeowners who suffered a pandemic hardship that caused a significant financial hardship, resulting in a need for mortgage and/or housing expense assistance, should review the programs available to eligible homeowners through Georgia Mortgage Assistance.
