NHS is a participating agency in the Illinois Housing Development Authority's (IHDA) Hardest Hit Program. Through funding from the U.S. Department of Treasury, IHDA is able to offer temporary mortgage payment assistance to households that are struggling with income loss due to unemployment or underemployment, but are working to regain sufficient income to keep their homes. As a participating program review agency, NHS works directly with homeowners to review their program eligibility and to complete and submit an application to IHDA.
The Illinois Hardest Hit Program offers two types of assistance:
Maximum assistance is $20,000 - $25,000, depending upon the county where the property is located.
