HUD Releases Disaster Relief Aid for Flooded Florida

Provides mortgage moratoriums and home rehabilitation insurance.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released disaster relief aid for the state of Florida, offering various flexibilities to homeowners, renters, and landlords affected by Hurricane Idalia. The department has made a number of tools immediately available, including a 90-day moratorium on mortgage foreclosures insured by the Federal Housing Administration, insurance for home rehabilitation, and administrative flexibilities for grant recipients and public housing agencies.

“My thoughts are with those who lost or experienced damage to their homes. HUD’s role in a disaster is to ensure that people and communities can recover and return home,” said HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. “HUD is committed to seeing Florida’s recovery through.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge as she facilitates housing assistance for those displaced by the hurricane.
  • For Administrator Criswell as she oversees disaster recovery support to multiple states.
  • For Governor DeSantis and other state and local leaders as they continue to provide support during recovery efforts.
