Housing Assistance and Money Saving Tips

Housing assistance. If you’re concerned about how to pay your mortgage or rent due. 

  • Coronavirus program updates from HUD.gov
  • Call 211 to reach your local United Way
  • Ask if your rent or mortgage payment can be adjusted, deferred or skipped for a certain time period. Many landlords and lenders are offering options and some states are not allowing evictions.
  • Check in the STATE PROGRAMS section below for any state-specific programs.

Contact your Bank or Credit Union. Many are waiving fees on late or missed credit card or loan payments or offering affected borrowers the ability to defer or skip making loan payments.
