The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) is a federally-funded housing assistance program for Massachusetts homeowners impacted by COVID-19. It was created to provide funds to eligible homeowners for housing-related costs such as mortgages and property expenses.
The Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP) is administering HAF and working with third-party vendors to manage the program's on-line administration systems for mortgage servicers.
After June 30, 2023, Mass HAF will no longer accept new applications. Beginning on July 1, 2023, the state-funded Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) program will become available to low-income homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure. At that time, eligible homeowners may apply for RAFT through the Emergency Housing Payment Assistance Portal.
To participate in Mass HAF, servicers must complete the onboarding process. Contact email@example.com to request an onboarding packet.
Servicers are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or concerns.
HAF was created by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and is being administered by the US Treasury. The Massachusetts HAF Program is being administered by MHP and the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency (MassHousing) in collaboration with the Massachusetts Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F), Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED), Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), and the Massachusetts Division of Banks (the Division).
