Hardest Hit Fund

The “Hardest Hit Fund’s Homeowner Emergency Loan Program” or “HHF HELP”, will assist low and moderate income families across the State with temporary mortgage payment assistance while they work to regain sufficient income to pay their mortgage.

METEC will be working with IHDA and participating lenders in the HHF HELP to reduce the number of mortgage delinquencies and avoidable foreclosures caused by unemployment and underemployment, and to preserve homeownership for moderate and low income families in Peoria and surrounding counties.
