Homeowners Can Apply for the California COVID-19 Mortgage Relief Program

Homeowners who have fallen behind on their housing payments during the COVID-19 pandemic can apply for the California Mortgage Relief Program, which now accepts applications online.

The California Mortgage Assistance Program aims to help up to 40,000 residents with funds set aside for homeowners in socially disadvantaged and underserved communities that are often the hardest hit by the pandemic.

Those who are eligible may qualify for a maximum of $ 80,000 per household, with a direct payment to qualified homeowners mortgage servicers. It will not be necessary to repay a grant.
