For more than two years, Idaho Housing and Finance has provided assistance to renters in Idaho who have found themselves facing financial difficulty because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program can provide rent and utility assistance to renters who earn less than 80 percent of the Area Median Income, owe past-due rent or utilities or who are unable to pay upcoming rent or utilities because of financial hardship during the pandemic.

Homeowner Assistance Fund

It’s not just renters who can receive help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to the launch of Idaho Housing and Finance’s Homeowner Assistance Fund, residents in Idaho who are struggling with their mortgage payments can now receive financial assistance.

The fund is only available to Idaho homeowners who are currently in forbearance, who meet income limits, have a financial hardship related to COVID-19 and who have owned and lived in their home since January 1, 2020.

The amount of assistance will vary depending on your household’s situation. The maximum assistance a household can receive is $50,000. Any approved assistance will be sent directly to the mortgage servicer, property tax authority, insurance company, or HOA/condo association. The fund does not cover any upcoming house payments.
