What is the Mortgage, Property Tax, and Utility Assistance Program?
The HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton is working with Miami Valley Community Action Partnership to help local homeowners who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Mortgage Assistance Program helps homeowners to catch up on their mortgage and ultimately avoid foreclosure. Funding is also available to pay utility bills and property taxes that are behind. Grant funds come through the Community Development Block Grant CARES Act (CDBG-CV). Funds will be paid directly to applicant’s mortgage company and utility companies.
Qualified applicants must:
- Own a home (primary residence) in Montgomery, Greene, Darke, Warren or Preble County.
- Have had a financial hardship due to COVID-19 that impacted their ability to pay their mortgage.
- Be behind on their mortgage, or in a forbearance agreement with their mortgage company, as of 4/1/2020 or later.
