FHA’s special COVID-19 mortgage payment forbearance is currently available to FHA-insured borrowers.

There are two ways to get more information on the special COVID-19 mortgage payment forbearance:

First, contact your mortgage servicer, the entity to which you make your mortgage payments. If you are unable to contact your mortgage servicer right now, get help from a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency.
  • Call email or visit the website of your mortgage servicer using the contact information on your monthly mortgage statement.
  • State that you have a financial hardship due to COVID-19 and request a COVID-19 forbearance. A COVID-19 forbearance allows you to reduce or suspend your mortgage payments for a period of time.
  • Contact a HUD-approved housing counseling agency in your local area. To find a HUD-approved agency, call (800)569-4287, or use the online search at www.hud.gov/housingcounseling
  • Explain your situation. Housing counselors are trained to assess your financial situation and explain the options available to you.
  • A HUD certified housing counselor may be able to help you work with your mortgage servicer to obtain a COVID-19 forbearance.
