The stimulus check program has helped millions of Americans in the past two years. The program helped households with monthly bills, but larger expenses have taken a toll on many Americans. To help homeowners with mortgage payments, a new federal program has been launched. While this is not the same as the stimulus check program, it will help homeowners stay afloat, and catch up with late mortgage payments.
US Home Stimulus Act 2022 Outline
Those who are still paying off their mortgage will get much-needed relief, in lieu of a fourth stimulus check. Eligible taxpayers who have outstanding mortgage payments will receive up to $80,000 to help with their payments.
The money was set aside, as part of the American Rescue Plan Act, initiated by US president Joe Biden. Those who will receive the funds are vulnerable homeowners, who may be at risk of losing their homes.
What states will receive the funds?
The National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) has stated that all the states in the country will receive financial aid with mortgage payments. The program will go underway with the US Department of Treasury to make sure that eligible recipients will receive their funds.
The program is in various stages, with a pilot program running in some: Wyoming, Ohio, Orlando, and additional states have launched the program in pilot mode.
Will there be another stimulus check?
Currently, there is no federal program for a fourth stimulus check; however, there may be local programs to aid those who are struggling financially. Many states have stated that they will launch new stimulus check programs to help residents. Also, there will be a second round of the fourth stimulus check; parents to babies who were born in 2021 can get a check, as they have new dependents.
How to get the mortgage payments
Each state will give out mortgage aid programs in the next few months. To check your eligibility, you need to go to your state’s website and get more information about the program.
