NC Homeowner Assistance Fund

Established through the American Rescue Plan of 2021, the NC Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) was created for homeowners in North Carolina to help prevent mortgage delinquencies, defaults, displacements and foreclosures due to COVID-19.

HOPE Program

The Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions Program (HOPE) provides rent and utility assistance to very low-income renters that are experiencing financial hardship due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. The program helps prevent evictions and utility disconnections to promote housing stability during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Find Your Program

The NC HOPE application period closed December 17, 2021. There are also 12 counties that are managing local pandemic-related rent and utility assistance programs. If you are a renter in one of these 12 counties, you should apply to the local program instead of the HOPE Program. Find your program using the interactive map or list of local programs provided.
