Media Fellowship House is partnering with the Delaware County Council to administer the DELCO CARES Mortgage Relief Program to homeowners in Delaware County who have been financially impacted by the economic slowdown related to the coronavirus pandemic.
Qualified homeowners in Delaware County who have been financially impacted by the economic slowdown related to the coronavirus pandemic may apply for mortgage and utility relief. Grants are available on a first-come basis.
Homeowner applicants may be eligible to receive assistance for mortgage and utility costs for a period not to exceed three (3) months. Total assistance available for homeowners is $6,000 of which no more than $1,000 may be for utility payments. Eligible utilities include water, sewer, electric, and gas. Financial assistance payments through this program will be made directly to the mortgagee or utility vendor.
Successful applicants must meet the eligibility requirements established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To be eligible for homeowner assistance, homeowners must be able to document that they have been financially impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic. The applicant must be an owner-occupant of their residence with a household annual income of no more than 80% of the HUD-defined Area Median Income (adjusted for the number of people in their home), be up to date on mortgage payments as of March 1, 2020, have home insurance, and be up to date with county, municipal and school tax payments.
