COVID-19 and Storm Resources for Habitat Homeowners
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville (HFHGN) has received funding to provide mortgage assistance to Habitat homeowners from Davidson, Cheatham, Dickson, Robertson, and Wilson Counties through the COVID-19 Response Fund operated by United Way. The COVID-19 Response Fund was created by Mayor John Cooper and a group of philanthropic, government and business partners to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations. For non-Habitat homeowners and for information on other types of support such as health resources, food assistance, employment, financial assistance, and more, the United Way has set up a portal with these resources and you can find it here.
If you are a Habitat homeowner who has experienced an income loss or other financial impact due to COVID-19, please see below to complete the request form. Assistance will be awarded on a case-by-case basis to assist with mortgage payments and potentially utilities as funding is available. In following social distancing guidelines, we are not meeting with homeowners in person. If you need assistance to fill out the form, please call 615-254-4663.
After you complete the form, a staff member will contact you soon. A financial counseling session by phone or video is included and required for anyone receiving assistance with the goal of helping you maximize all benefits and programs available. We may request the following documents to process your application for assistance:
- Proof of income loss
- Verification of other assistance such as unemployment, stimulus, other agency funding – Receipt of these benefits does NOT automatically disqualify you from mortgage assistance but allows us to provide better counseling
- Current mortgage or utility statements
