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:
- They are part of the HAF program and
- You apply for HAP.
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.

If you do not qualify for legal aid, try a lawyer referral service like the Massachusetts Bar Association Referral Hotline at (866) 627-7577 or if your income is low enough, you may qualify for their reduced fee referral..
