Homeowner Assistance Fund (NYS HAF)

Starting today, the New York Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF)  application portal is live.  Homeowners who have gotten behind on mortgage or tax payments due to COVID are eligible to apply through the online portal.  Funding is limited and it is highly recommended that homeowners apply as soon as possible.


Chautauqua Opportunities has staff who are available to assist with submitting applications to HAF and providing foreclosure prevention counseling.  Homeowners can reach out to us to schedule an appointment by calling a Navigator at 716-366-8176 or 716-661-8176.  We recommend homeowners call asap to set up an appointment.  Homeowners can also apply directly through the HAF website.   We know many homeowners have been affected by COVID and could benefit from this time-limited opportunity.
