Attention Habitat Denver Homeowners
If you are a Habitat homeowner who is experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for a mortgage relief grant. This grant is available for a limited time and could cover up to $1,000 of your monthly mortgage payment. The grant is 100% forgivable and you can apply every month until the funding runs out. There is no fee or penalty related to this program and it will not affect your credit.
Our homeownership program empowers working individuals and families to build and buy their own homes. We partner with our homeowners every step of the way, and provide the education and support needed to become successful homeowners.
