The NHAF may be able to help residents stay in their home and get back on track. Funding for the NHAF program is provided by the Homeowner Assistance Fund established by the U.S. Department of Treasury as part of the congressional American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).

The NHAF program is designed to assist homeowners with past due payments for their mortgage, utilities/internet, property taxes, insurance and/or homeowners’ association dues.
