Florida Homeowner Assistance Fund
Established as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) was implemented to mitigate financial hardships associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to help homeowners address issues with mortgage delinquencies and defaults that can lead to foreclosure and household displacement. It can also provide funding to address the loss of utilities or energy services and insurance.
