Shelby event to help homeowners who need help


The NC Homeowner Assistance Fund will host a pop-up event from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27 at Habitat for Humanity in Shelby.

During the event, outreach and case management staff from the NC Homeowner Assistance Fund will be on hand to help homeowners who need help with mortgage and other housing-related costs due to the pandemic to learn more about the program and complete applications.

The NC Homeowner Assistance Fund is accepting applications from North Carolina homeowners whose finances have been impacted by the pandemic and who need assistance with housing-related expenses.

Established as part of the 2021 U.S. bailout to prevent mortgage defaults, defaults, displacements and foreclosures for homeowners experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Fund provides assistance up to reach $40,000 to qualified homeowners while financing is available.

For qualified owners, the fund offers:

  • Housing payment assistance for primary residence in North Carolina.
  • Mortgage reinstatement assistance to catch up on late payments (first and second mortgage) or other housing-related costs due to a period of forbearance, delinquency or default.
  • Assistance covering other housing-related costs such as homeowner’s insurance, flood insurance, mortgage insurance, homeowners association dues/fees, or delinquent property taxes to avoid foreclosure.
