The New Mexico Homeowner Assistance Fund can help pay your past-due and current mortgage payments if you are experiencing a financial hardship associated with the COVID-19 health crisis.
The State of New Mexico and MFA are soliciting feedback on the State of New Mexico Homeowner Assistance (HAF) Draft Plan. MFA prepared this plan to propose programs for the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Homeowner Assistance Fund that was passed as part of American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. These programs aim to mitigate financial hardships associated with the COVID-19 health crisis, including the prevention of homeowner mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities or home energy services, and displacements of homeowners.
Please note that MFA is awaiting additional guidance from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Therefore, aspects of the plan may change upon release of the additional guidance.
Homeowners and renters: If you have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 health crisis, you may qualify for housing cost assistance.
The MFA office reopened July 6, following COVID-19 safe practices. In the interim, all MFA programs are operational, and we are moving forward on all fronts with as little disruption as possible. If you need to reach an MFA staff member, please contact them via phone or e-mail. Learn more about what’s happening at MFA and how it could affect you.
Due to the continued restrictions on mass gatherings in New Mexico and because of our commitment to your health and safety, MFA has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 New Mexico Housing summit for another year. We will post the dates of the September 2022 Housing Summit soon. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you in Albuquerque next year.
Construction is set to begin on Pueblo of Acoma's newest LIHTC development in April 2021. MFA awarded $6.7 million in tax credits to fund the 30-unit development, which will be built in the traditional Acoma architectual style.
