AHFC Offers Rent Relief Program to Alaskan's in Need
The Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) has announced that Alaskans who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, and who meet certain eligibility criteria, can apply for one month of mortgage or rental relief. Each eligible household may receive up to $1,200, payable to their lender or landlord. Alaskans can apply by completing a questionnaire and certifying their loss of income was caused by COVID-19. After the application deadline, a lottery will be conducted by AHFC to select recipients. Recipients will be asked for additional details to verify their loss of income and so payment can appropriately be routed to their lender or landlord.
