Louisiana is providing up to $25,000 each to homeowners impacted by COVID-19 who are behind on their mortgage payments and at risk of foreclosure.

The program — funded by $146.7 million in federal pandemic aid — is available statewide to homeowners earning less than 150 percent of the area median income or 100 percent of the national median income, whichever is greater. 

In Orleans Parish, a three-person household qualifies for relief if its income is than $94,650. That same household qualifies in East Baton Rouge Parish if it makes less than $107,100 and in Lafayette Parish with less than $92,350.

To apply for the program, visit haf.lacovidhousing.com or call 833.885.2423.
