Requirements of the County Mortgage Payment Assistance Program
This program is intended for residents who were adversely affected by Covid-19 that caused them to be unable to afford their mortgage payments at no fault of their own. Missed payments prior to April 2020 are not considered Covid-19-related hardships because closures didn’t start until mid-March. Only those who are currently past due on payments are eligible. We have mortgage counselors ready to take your calls and help connect you to the resources needed to get into a better situation as soon as possible. There are income limits as defined in the chart below.
The following details the eligibility requirements of the county mortgage payment assistance program:
- Past due payments up to 6 months
- Delinquency before April 1, 2020 will not be eligible
