THE MORTGAGE PROTECTION PROGRAM EXPIRES JUNE 30, 2010
Due to the popularity of this program, the qualifying period has been extended to June 30, 2010 or until allocated funds have depleted, whichever occurs first.
On April 2, 2009 the Housing Affordability Fund launched a new program designed to provide peace of mind to first-time buyers who are hesitant to enter the housing market due to concerns about potential job loss, and subsequently being unable to meet their monthly mortgage obligations. Qualifying buyers can receive up to $1,500 a month for up to six months in the event of job loss, a qualified co-buyer can also receive a $750 benefit for up to six months to help pay the mortgage.
Funding for this program was made possible by the generous contributions of REALTORS® and supporters of the Housing Affordability Fund. Contributions to the Housing Affordability Fund
are tax-deductible. To show your support of this and other programs developed by H.A.F.,
