Rental Assistance

If you don’t have enough money to pay, contact your landlord immediately. Most landlords are working with tenants on identifying a payment plan to help pay overdue rent. Rental assistance programs also exist to provide assistance.

Homeowner Assistance

  • Homeowners with FHA, USDA, VA, or Section 184 or 184A mortgages (for members of federally-recognized tribes) and those with mortgages backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac have the right to request forbearance on their payments for up to 6 months, with a possible extension for another 6 months without fees, penalties, or extra interest. Homeowners should contact their mortgage servicing company directly. 
  • Still need help? Call the Washington home-ownership hotline at 877-894-HOME.

Paying Utilities

If you need help paying your utility bills, contact your service provider immediately.

Student Loans 

If you need help with your student loans, you may be able to temporarily suspend your payments by applying for a deferment or forbearance from the U.S. Department of Education.
