What is Hardest Hit Alabama?

Hardest Hit Alabama (HHA), a foreclosure prevention program, is now available for homeowners struggling to pay their mortgage payments due to job loss.

Approximately $162 million was allocated to provide assistance targeted at Alabama’s unemployed homeowners. The U.S. Department of Treasury‘s “Hardest Hit Fund” is authorized under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 and is available in 18 states and the District of Columbia.

Eligible homeowners will receive assistance to pay their current mortgage payment and all other mortgage-related expenses, including payments on any subordinate liens, while unemployed. HHA will provide up to 12 monthly mortgage payments, or $15,000, per household.

Alabama homeowners who have been declared eligible by the Alabama Department of Industrial Relations to receive state unemployment compensation benefits may apply. To qualify, applicants must have a total annual household income of less than $75,740, and the unpaid principal balance on their home’s mortgages must be less than $258,690.

The homeowner must currently occupy the property as their primary residence, and the home must be located in Alabama. Assistance will be available for single-family homes, attached or detached, and manufactured housing attached to real property.

HHA will be available statewide to qualified homeowners on a first-come, first-served basis.
