Texas still has unspent federal COVID money. One program, Texas Homeowner Assistance, has hundreds of millions of dollars still available.
Funds Program Still Available
Homeowners can apply for up to $65,000 per household to help with past-due mortgage payments and of the maximum $65,000 available, up to $25,000 can be used for property charge defaults. There have been several assistance programs since the pandemic began. Your participation in those programs will not bar you from taking part in TXHAF.
So long as you can show you currently owe mortgage payments or fees, TXHAF may be able to help you. However, if you get paid twice for the same amount owed, you may need to repay the excess funds. The U.S. is winding down, and so are federal programs providing financial assistance to homeowners struggling because of the impacts of the disease. But before that happens, housing officials in Brownsville are reminding folks that there’s still enough money in the Texas Homeowner Assistance program to help out hundreds of homeowners in Cameron and Willacy counties.
TXHAF can help those behind on their mortgage payments due to COVID-19-related hardships. It can also help pay past-due property taxes, insurance payments, HOA fees, and condo association fees. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs administers the program.
