Help for Homeowners During the Covid Crisis

Release Date: April 26, 2020
Free COVID Resources for You

Dear Homeowner,

 

This is a trying time for all of us; many have lost their jobs or had their incomes or savings negatively affected by the Covid crisis. As you know, the Housing Partnership has been contracted by your municipality to administer their affordable housing, so we can help you understand your options.

 

Mortgages and Foreclosures

You may have heard that some lenders are offering a moratorium on payments but those are only offered to people who contact their lenders and explain their situation. It is important that you act quickly and that you understand the terms of the moratoriums. 

 

We offer free, HUD-approved Foreclosure Prevention Counseling to help you avoid scams and understand what your options are if you're struggling with your mortgage during this crisis. To begin the process with a HUD-Certified housing counselor start here: https://www.housingpartnershipnj.org/home-ownership-preservation/

 

 We’ve also put together some other resources to help you and your families out during this difficult time. They’re all listed by category below.
