The program is providing grant assistance to homeowners who have experienced difficulty meeting their mortgage obligations or other housing costs due to COVID-19-related financial hardship. For homeowners who meet the eligibility requirements, this assistance may include bringing a mortgage current or making future mortgage payments. Assistance is also available for other associated housing costs, including but not limited to non-escrowed real estate taxes, condominium and homeowners' association fees, non-escrowed homeowners' insurance, and municipal tax liens. Homeowners may apply for up to $30,000 in grant assistance, and payments will be made directly to the mortgage servicer or debt holder.
To be eligible, an applicant must live in Connecticut and occupy the property as their primary residence. The applicant also must have experienced a COVID-19-related financial hardship after January 21, 2020, or experienced a financial hardship before that date that was then exacerbated by the pandemic. The property must be an owner-occupied, one-to-four-unit house, condominium, townhouse, or manufactured home.
