The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have launched a joint website aimed at consolidating information and resources for federal assistance into one location for home owners and renters.
According to a joint release, the website was built to consolidate FHFA, CFPB, HUD and other assistance and resources created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to help Americans weather the financial impact of COVID-19. The website includes guidance on mortgage assistance, renter protections, fraud detection and prevention tips and more resources. It also includes FHFA’s new tools for renters looking to see if their property is financed through the Government Sponsored Enterprises and eligible for eviction protection.
“Protecting and empowering borrowers and renters while ensuring the mortgage market functions as efficiently as possible has been a priority for FHFA during the national health emergency,” stated FHFA Director Mark Calabria in the release. “This joint website is a one-stop shop for information about the housing protections and assistance available from the government during this unprecedented crisis.”
MHI is committed to ensuring the needs of the manufactured housing industry are reflected in legislation that supports the long financial stability of American businesses and families in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak—including access to stimulus funds throught the Paycheck Protection Program and assistance for renters and property owners impacted by this national health emergency.
