HUD Announces Hurricane Harvey Assistance

This week, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that has taken a number of steps to provide assistance for victims of Hurricane Harvey in counties subject to the president’s disaster declaration. Among other things, HUD is granting a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures of Federal Housing Administration-insured home mortgages, making certain types of home insurance more available, and working to streamline CDBG and HOME grants to expedite the repair and replacement of damaged housing.
