Qualifying Homeowners Now Eligible for up to $26,550 through HAF Program

Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces the expansion of eligibility requirements providing more families access to mortgage relief through the Guam Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) Program. The Department of Administration (DOA) is resuming the HAF Cycle 4 pre-application period beginning today, October 17, 2022. 

“Effective immediately, eligible homeowners on Guam can receive up to $26,550 in financial assistance for housing expenses. This benefits at least 200 homeowners expected to reach the prior limit of $15,000, but now will receive increased relief from the expanded threshold,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Our Administration remains committed to securing every opportunity for relief to empower the people of Guam through recovery.”

“With guidance from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, DOA worked to update the HAF Program terms to reflect the financial hardship homeowners continue to experience,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “Through the dedication of our local government workers, to date we have delivered $5 million in financial assistance to help 940 homeowners with their mortgage, utilities, and property payments since January 31, 2022.”

The HAF Program now provides financial assistance of up to $26,550 to be used for qualified expenses per eligible household experiencing hardship due to the pandemic. The program has further adopted the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 2022 Income Limit for Guam, which expands access to relief for more homeowners.
