Hardest Hit Funds provides relief for homeowners in some states
The housing crisis of 2007 led to a massive recession that contributed to job losses, home value declines and economic instability. In 2010, in an effort to support the U.S. housing market (the health of which is critical to the U.S. economy) the Obama Administration established the Hardest Hit Fund. This fund makes available $7.6 billion to the 18 states most affected by the housing market downturn, and the District of Columbia.
Hardest Hit Fund programs are designed and administered by each state’s Housing Finance Agency in locally tailored programs that assist homeowners struggling to meet their loan obligations. They are aimed at helping those who owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth and helping unemployed homeowners remain in their homes as they search for employment.
