Florida Housing Launches Statewide
Hardest-Hit Fund Program
Tallahassee - During a press conference on Tuesday, April 5, Florida Housing Finance Corporation announced that unemployed or underemployed homeowners in Florida, who are having difficulty paying their mortgages, will be able to apply for financial assistance from the Florida Hardest-Hit Fund (HHF) beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, April 18.
"We're no in the position to offer this financial assistance statewide to the people out there who are desperately struggling to stay in their homes," said Steve Auger, executive director of Florida Housing. "For the homeowners who qualify, this temporary relief from their mortgage payments will provide some 'breathing room' so they can focus on becoming re-employed at a level that will allow them to resume making payments on their own."

Homeowners in every Florida county may apply for financial assistance from the fund by using the official HHF website. The site contains all the information users will need to begin the application process, including a program fact sheet, answers to frequently asked questions and links to resources that may be helpful to those experiencing economic challenges.
Application for the Florida Hardest-Hit Fund program is FREE-OF-CHARGE, and applicants will not be asked to pay for any eligibility determination services in conjunction with applying for the program.
