For Homeowners

Alaska Housing Homeowner Assistance

Alaska Housing Homeowner Assistance is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number HAFP-0197 awarded to the State of Alaska by the US Department of the Treasury. As part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the program is designed to help homeowners avoid mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures. Approved payments will be distributed by AHFC and its partners directly to Mortgage Servicers and homeowner expense and utility providers. Read AHFC's HAF Annual Report

When Homeowner Assistance Is Complete

For individuals whose homeowner assistance is ending, please be proactive and speak with your Mortgage Servicer about your circumstances. If you continue to have financial challenges that make paying your mortgage or homeowner expenses difficult, we encourage you to review and take advantage of these resources to make sure you remain safely housed.
