The Housing Fund CARES

THF has received money from the CARES Act to help homeowners and renters who are struggling to pay their mortgages/rent and utilities get caught up. These funds do not have to be paid back. To receive these funds, you must verify the status of your mortgage payment or rent, your utilities, sign a grant agreement, and enroll in and take a money management course through eHome America.

Frequently Asked Questions

DOES THF EVER ALLOW FOR RATIOS TO EXCEED 45%?

No. We encourage those whose ratios exceed these to apply if interested. Sometimes we look at income differently than the first mortgage lender and we may be able to help.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE GOOD CREDIT TO APPLY?

THF makes all decisions regarding who might be eligible for our loans. Having a good payment history is an important part of that decision. You can find a list of some of the most important aspects of “good credit” on the “info for lenders” tab.

DO YOU PROVIDE DEVELOPMENT LOANS FOR ACQUISITION ONLY?

Yes. In addition, loans are made for Acquisition Rehab, Acquisition New Construction, Rehab, and New Construction..

DO YOU PROVIDE RENTAL ASSISTANCE?

No. We recommend contacting either MDHA or THDA for Section 8 assistance.
