About the Homeowner Assistance Fund
$72 million will be available to assist homeowners through the Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) in the coming months!
OHCS anticipates accepting applications beginning mid-November 2021. HAF will open in phases, initially focusing on homeowners the most at-risk of foreclosure or displacement. HAF will open more broadly over time and plans to open to all eligible homeowners in the first half of 2022.
