Attention FHA Borrowers

Hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be felt across the country.  Currently, there are well over 300,000 borrowers who are at least 60-days delinquent on their FHA mortgage and have not sought help to avoid a future foreclosure.  To assist FHA borrowers with keeping their homes, there is availability of COVID-19 forbearance relief. There is help for those who may be struggling to pay their FHA mortgage to possibly prevent them from losing one of their greatest assets…their home!
