FHA Borrower COVID-19 Forbearance Assistance - June 15, 2021
From the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development...
Hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be felt across the country. There are well over 300,000 borrowers who are at least 60-days delinquent on their FHA mortgage and have not sought help to avoid a future foreclosure. COVID-19 forbearance relief is available to assist FHA borrowers with keeping their homes.
If you are struggling to pay your FHA mortgage, please contact your mortgage servicer. State that you have a financial hardship due to COVID-19 and request a COVID-19 forbearance. A COVID-19 forbearance allows you to reduce or suspend your mortgage payments for a period of time. If you are unable to contact your mortgage servicer right now, get help from a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency in your local area @ 1-800-569-4287 or at www.hud.gov/housingcounseling.
