The Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) announced the re-opening of the Illinois Hardest Hit program (HHF) on August 1, a mortgage assistance program to support working families having trouble making mortgage payments due to loss of income.

See more.

The program, funded by the U.S Department of the Treasury, will provide eligible homeowners up to $35,000 in Reinstatement Assistance and/or Monthly Mortgage Payment Assistance. Reinstatement Assistance is a one-time payment of all mortgage arrearage, fees, and penalties. The Monthly Mortgage Payment Assistance will pay 100 percent of the homeowner's monthly mortgage payment for up to 12 months. HHF assistance will be provided as a five year forgivable loan and funds may have to be repaid to IHDA if the owner sells the home at a profit or refinances during the five year loan term.

Applicants must have experienced a 15 percent reduction in income due to a qualifying hardship event that was through no fault of their own. The hardship event must have occurred after January 1st, 2010 and after the purchase of the property. Examples of a hardship event include: unemployment; underemployment; decrease or loss of business income; loss of income due to disability or health-related event; death of spouse or title holder and divorce of spouse or title holder.

Free applications for the program are available exclusively through IHDA's Illinois Hardest Hit website: Applicants will be matched with a local housing agency that will answer questions, prescreen applicants for eligibility and assist homeowners in preparing the application and assembling the required supporting documentation. The program will be open for applications on Monday, August 1. Homeowners who were assisted previously through the program are not eligible to re-apply.
