FHA and HUD Announce Assistance for Colorado Storm Victims

001

The FHA and HUD have issued a press release announcing help for victims of recent storms and flooding in Colorado. According to HUDNo.13-142, foreclosure relief, FHA home loans for disaster victims, and other forms of assistance are now available to those in Adams, Boulder, Larimer and Weld Counties.

The press release says, “U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan today announced HUD will speed federal disaster assistance to the State of Colorado and provide support to homeowners and low-income renters forced from their homes due to severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides.” This type of assistance generally comes after the affected area has been declared a disaster zone by the president.

“Families who may have been forced from their homes need to know that help is available to begin the rebuilding process,” said Secretary Donovan. “Whether it’s foreclosure relief for FHA-insured families or helping these counties to recover, HUD stands ready to help in any way we can.”

That assistance comes in a variety of forms, including the following as described in the press release:

Foreclosure Relief – HUD granted a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and forbearance on foreclosures of Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-insured home mortgages.

Mortgage Insurance – HUD’s Section 203(h) program provides FHA insurance to disaster victims who have lost their homes and are facing the daunting task of rebuilding or buying another home. Borrowers from participating FHA-approved lenders are eligible for 100 percent financing, including closing costs.

Making insurance available for both mortgages and home rehabilitation – HUD’s Section 203(k) loan program enables those who have lost their homes to finance the purchase or refinance of a house along with its repair through a single mortgage. It also allows homeowners who have damaged houses to finance the rehabilitation of their existing single-family home.

For more information on this assistance or to learn how you can apply, contact the FHA directly by calling 1-800 CALL FHA. Borrowers with FHA loans who are affected by the storms and flooding should contact the FHA, as well as their loan officer and FEMA to learn what relief measures may apply and how to avoid complications with an FHA loan during disaster recovery efforts.
