The program eligibility criteria include:

• Became past due on mortgage payments after Jan. 1, 2020.

• Experienced a financial hardship such as job loss, reduced income, high medical costs, disability, death in the family or divorce.

• Mortgage payment is no more than 45% of household monthly income.
