Pennsylvania is Now Accepting Applications for the Homeowner Assistance Fund
Pennsylvania is now accepting applications for the Pennsylvania Homeowner Assistance Fund (PAHAF).
The Pennsylvania Homeowner Assistance Fund, or PAHAF, is a housing-related program funded by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to assist Pennsylvania homeowners facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic that began after January 21, 2020, (including a hardship that began before January 21, 2020, and continued after that date).
The program will provide financial assistance to homeowners for qualified mortgage and housing-related expenses to avoid delinquency, default, foreclosure, or displacement.
You could be eligible for:
- Help with delinquent mortgage payments or rent-to-own payments, up to $30,000
- Help with property taxes, HOA or Condo Fees
- Help with Utility Expenses such as Gas, Water or Electric
To be eligible to receive money from PAHAF, you must:
- Own your home (if you inherited your home, you can still apply even if your name is not on the deed).
- Have lost income or have higher expenses because of the COVID-19 pandemic
- Meet certain income guidelines
You can apply for PAHAF by visiting PAHAF.org or by calling 888-987-2423.
