About the Bureau

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a 21st-century agency that helps consumer finance markets work by regularly identifying and addressing outdated, unnecessary or unduly burdensome regulations; by making rules more effective; by consistently enforcing federal consumer financial law; and by empowering consumers to take more control over their economic lives.

The HAF program is winding down. Homeowners in foreclosure may be eligible to submit applications through a HAF intake partner. Intake partners may require their own application documents and completion of free foreclosure avoidance counseling. Submitting or having an application reviewed does not guarantee funds will be available, because the program may be overallocated.​

Find out more about the ​Homeowner Assistance Fund​.

If you received HAF funds and need a payoff statement, order it by emailing haf.payoffs@hcs.oregon.gov​.

Oregon's Foreclosure Avoidance Program​ lends a structured process for:
  • Communicating with the lender
  • Submitting financial documentation to the lender
  • Working with a financial counselor
  • Meeting with the lender in person with a facilitator at a neutral location

​This program is available for these types of homeowners:

  • Homeowners who have received a "Notice of Resolution Conference" from their lender
  • Homeowners who are behind on their loan obligation
  • Home​owners in financial hardship and wish to request a resolution conference with their lender
  • Any homeowner who can't make their mortgage payment.
