Help For Homeowners

The Oregon Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) helps homeowners who meet certain income requirements and have fallen behind on their mortgage payments and other housing costs due to the coronavirus pandemic. HAF is opening in phases and focuses on homeowners most at risk of foreclosure or displacement. OHCS is currently accepting applications from homeowners in Phases 1–3.

Homeowners can review the HAF program overview and eligibility fact sheet (available in English and PORTUGUESE) to determine when they should apply.

Before requesting assistance through HAF, homeowners should contact their servicer and/or a nonprofit housing counselor about their immediate options as HAF funds are limited and intended as a last resort.

To help homeowners navigate the application process, OHCS has launched a website at oregonhomeownerassistance.org which provides:

  • an overview of the program and its benefits
  • eligibility requirements and phases timeline
  • application resources
  • frequently asked questions
  • contact information
  • fraud prevention and reporting tools
  • legal aid and more
