North Dakota’s plan for utilizing Homeowner Assistance Funding has been approved by the U.S. Department of Treasury. This assistance can help qualifying homeowners who are at risk of housing instability due to past due mortgage, utilities, or related property expenses or who may be struggling to maintain stable housing for other financial reasons. These funds are intended to complement solutions that are offered by mortgage servicers and will be known in North Dakota as “ND Help for Homeowners.”
Homeowners can apply through the state’s online housing assistance portal.
