(BPT) - The COVID-19 pandemic has brought financial hardship and uncertainty, leaving many to temporarily suspend their mortgage or rent payments. In an effort to provide information on the assistance available, mortgage giant Fannie Mae recently launched “Here to Help.” This is an online portal that explains options available for those struggling to make mortgage or rent payments. It features videos, fact sheets, lookup tools, and other resources on mortgage or rent assistance options, including forbearance and payment deferral.
