Homeowner Assistance Program Update:

The HomeHelpMN COVID-19 Homeowner Assistance Fund program is currently in the process for approval by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. When finalized, the program will provide financial assistance and other supports to help homeowners struggling with their mortgage or other housing-related costs due to the economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.

What Can Homeowners Do Today?

The program is not available yet and the amount of funding available will likely not meet the anticipated needs of all eligible Minnesota homeowners. It is important that lenders, mortgage servicers, and homeowners work together to explore the full range of options available to help Minnesotans keep their homes.

These are steps that can be taken now:

  1. Explore an affordable loss mitigation work-out solution. Lenders and homeowners should communicate about what options are available. Additional resources are available through the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
  2. Connect with a local HUD-approved housing counselor. HUD-approved housing counselors provide free, unbiased, confidential services to help homeowners make choices to address their housing needs. Homeowners can connect with foreclosure prevention services via the Minnesota Homeownership Center.
  3. Apply for the Energy Assistance Program. Homeowners may qualify for help with energy bills and future energy costs, including delivered fuels. Visit the Minnesota Department of Commerce or call 651.657.3710 to learn more about eligibility and apply.
