The Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) is a financial relief program to help homeowners financially impacted by COVID-19.
The program provides up to $50,000 in financial aid to low- to moderate-income families who are behind on their mortgages and at risk of foreclosure.
Funded through the U.S. Dept. of Treasury and administered by the Louisiana Office of Community Development, the program provides an allocated $146.7 million in funding to eligible homeowners to prevent mortgage delinquencies, defaults, and foreclosures.
Louisiana’s HAF program provides mortgage assistance to eligible households, providing both reinstatement payments and payments over time for:
Mortgage loans in forbearance
Delinquent loans not in forbearance
Loans in foreclosure
