Can I get any help with my foreclosure?

Reviewed January 2022

You can get help if you are facing foreclosure. You are not alone.

The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) provides financial assistance to help homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your mortgage servicer must stop foreclosure proceedings if:

Look for your servicer in the "mortgage servicers who have signed the agreement" section of the HAF page. Because they are still adding new servicers, you may want to apply even if you do not see your servicer on the list.
