CALIFORNIA MORTGAGE RELIEF PROGRAM
While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected millions of Americans and created turmoil for homeowners, California is on track to receive $1 billion in mortgage relief funds from the American Rescue Plan Act’s Homeowner Assistance Fund. Homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments due to pandemic-related financial hardship can use these funds to get caught up.
The California Mortgage Relief Program will provide grants to eligible California homeowners to repay missed mortgage payments or reverse mortgage arrearages during the COVID-19 pandemic. Up to $80,000 per homeowner is available, and it is estimated that 20,000 - 40,000 homes will be served.
In order to be eligible, a California homeowner must:
-- Have annual income at or below 100% of the county’s Area Median Income; AND
-- Own a single-family home, condo or manufactured home (permanently affixed); AND
-- Faced a pandemic-related financial hardship after Jan. 21, 2020; AND
-- Meet one of the following qualifications:
-- Receiving public assistance; OR
-- Severely housing burdened; OR
-- Have no alternative mortgage workout options through your mortgage servicer
