The Homeowner Assistance Fund is processing applications and payments daily. HAF makes payments directly to registered vendors - we are working diligently to get vendors registered in the DC Vendor Portal. Typically, payments for registered vendors are processed in under 120 days from application approval.

DC Homeowner Assistance Fund

The DC Homeowner Assistance Fund Program uses funding from the American Rescue Plan to provide grants to District Homeowners who have been affected by COVID-19 to help keep their home.

The financial assistance program is accessed via a digital portal, that serves as a one-stop shop, providing grants to District homeowners impacted by COVID-19 who are struggling with their mortgage payments and other property or housing expenses.
