Active duty military personnel may qualify for housing assistance program

With so many active military personnel living in Virginia, this announcement seemed worthy of passing along. According to NAR:

Department of Defense and Army Corps of Engineers last week published the final rules for the Homeowners Assistance Program, as it applies to Members of the Armed Forces permanently reassigned during the mortgage crisis. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), passed in February, provided new relief for active duty military personnel who have been permanently relocated, and face or have faced a loss on the sale of their home. The program applies to those who purchased their property before July 1, 2006, and their reassignment was ordered at least 50 miles away, between 1 February 2006 and 30 September 2012. The property has to have served as the primary residence, and the recipient must not have received HAP aid previously.

For full information and an application, visit the DoD HAP website.

  1. This program seems to good to be true and really is… currently.

    Since it’s delivery I’ve yet to hear of an agent who could actually get the funding. I called the servicing folks and after several messages was told that it was in a holding pattern awaiting funding… Politics – meh

    I agree with Matthew, so far nothing good has appeared to have happened for our Armed Forces on this issue.
