Keep My TN Home: Helping Tennesseans Stay in Their Homes

The Keep My Tennessee Home - Tennessee’s Hardest Hit Fund program provides loans to unemployed or substantially underemployed homeowners who, through no fault of their own, are financially unable to make their mortgage payments and are in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure. Tennessee is one of 18 states plus the District of Columbia that are receiving Hardest Hit Funds due to having an unemployment rate that is higher than the national average. The Keep My Tennessee Home program will make homeowners’ payments on their mortgage and mortgage related expenses such as property taxes, homeowner insurance, homeowner association dues, and/or past-due mortgage payments that accumulated during a period of unemployment. The Hardest Hit Fund is being administered in Tennessee by the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA).

Homeowners in Shelby County are potentially eligible for forgivable loans of up to $20,000 to cover up to 18 months of mortgage expenses.
