IL. Housing Development Authority launches Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program

IHDA

IHDA developed the Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (EMA) to support Illinois homeowners unable to pay their mortgages due to a COVID-19 related loss of income. If approved, homeowners will receive a grant for up to $15,000 to cover missed mortgage payments beginning as early as March 2020 and prepay mortgage payments through December 2020, or until the $15,000 is exhausted. Not all households will receive $15,000 and an application alone is not a guarantee of assistance. Assistance will be paid directly to the mortgage servicer on the homeowner’s behalf. The EMA program will only pay full mortgage payments; no partial payments will be made. 

APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AUGUST 24, 2020 @ 9 AM ON IHDA’S WEBSITE.

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT THE APPLICATION IS SEPTEMBER 4TH, 2020.
