The California Mortgage Relief Program is providing financial assistance to get caught up on past-due mortgages or property taxes to help homeowners with a mortgage, a reverse mortgage, or who are mortgage-free. Using $1 billion in federal funds, the grants help homeowners who had a financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic. Assistance provided through this program is not a loan and does not need to be paid back.
Homeowners can check their eligibility and apply through an online portal at CaMortgageRelief.org. Application assistance is available through our Contact Center at 1-888-840-2594. Funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021’s Homeowner Assistance Fund, the California Mortgage Relief Program is run by the CalHFA Homeowner Relief Corporation in collaboration with the state's Housing is Key initiative.
