UPDATED COVID FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Updated: Sep 1, 2021
Some would argue that the government hasn’t done enough to help people recover from the financial impacts of COVID. Others would argue that the government has done TOO MUCH and wasted a lot of what they are spending. But no one can argue that the government hasn’t done ANYTHING. There has been a laundry list of items approved and then extended, and then re-vamped and then extended again. It’s hard to keep track of them all. Many of them were due to expire in July, August and September, but the Biden administration just announced that they are extending some of the programs and even coming out with new ones. It appears that the national moratorium on evictions will expire on July 31. However, the State of California has an eviction moratorium until Sept 30 for those who have been negatively impacted by COVID (among other restrictions).
The mortgage forbearance enrollment window was extended until Sept 30, 2021 for loans backed by the following federal agencies: HUD, VA, USDA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If your loan isn’t backed by one of those, your lender may still have some kind of forbearance program you can apply for, so you should ask them if you need assistance.
