What is HAF? The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) is intended to support homeowners facing housing instability resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Commonwealth of Virginia received approximately $250 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds through the U.S. Department of the Treasury to launch the Virginia Mortgage Relief Program to keep Virginians safe at home.
