Treasury Homeowner Assistance Fund Information Session Co-Hosted by USET SPF and Partner Orgas
September 21, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
The United States Treasury Department has reached out to USET SPF and several of our partner organizations to co-host an information session on the Treasury Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) established by the American Rescue Plan Act. The HAF provides funding to Tribal Nations, states, and territories to prevent mortgage delinquencies and defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities or home energy services, and displacement of homeowners experiencing financial hardship after January 21, 2020. Funds from HAF may be used for assistance with mortgage payments, homeowner’s insurance, utility payments, and other specified purposes.
A total of $498 million has been set aside for Tribal Nations and the Department of Hawaiian Homelands, a portion of which has been allocated to each Tribal Nation based on the allocation formulas used for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. The deadline for Tribal Nations to submit a Notice of Funds Request is September 30th. Treasury currently has lower submission rates from several regions, including the USET SPF region. Treasury seeks to increase awareness about this opportunity and facilitate more Treasury-Tribal leader engagement. During the information session, Treasury HAF program staff will give an overview of the program and take Tribal leader, staff, and Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE) questions.
Date/Time: September 21, 2021, 4:00pm EDT-5:00pm EDT
