Mortgage Payment Assistance: The federal government and private lenders alike have announced relief programs for some homeowners in response to the impacts of COVID-19.

  • The Department of Housing and Urban Development has suspended all foreclosures and evictions until mid-May, 2020 on FHA-insured mortgages for single family homes.
  • The Federal Housing Finance Agency has suspended foreclosure and eviction for homeowners with a single-family mortgage backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac until mid-May.
  • In addition to federal efforts, some banks and private lenders are also offering relief to mortgage-holders.

If you are a homeowner and the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted your ability to make your mortgage payments, please call your lender to see what assistance programs might be available to you.

Rent Payment Assistance: On March 24, 2020, Governor Ducey issued an executive order delaying the enforcement of eviction action orders for renters impacted by COVID-19. The order applies to renters who are quarantining due to COVID-19 or are facing economic hardship as a result of the outbreak. It will remain in effect for 120 days.
