If you are affected by Hurricane Harvey, you may be eligible to temporarily stop making your monthly mortgage payment for up to 12 months.
You must contact your mortgage servicer (the company where you send your monthly payments) as soon as possible. If you do not have the telephone number, you can look it up on the Mortgage Bankers Association website at www.mba.org/news-research-and-resources/hurricane relief.
If you have difficulty contacting your mortgage services, contact the Homeowner’s HOPE hotline at 1-888-995-HOPE (4673) for assistance and FREE confidential support from a HUD-approved housing counselor.

In the event of a disaster or other emergency, this is your information hub for the weeks and months after the immediate emergency passes and recovery begins. If the emergency creates the need for shelters, food and water distribution or longer term housing we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction. This is NOT the best source of information before and during an emergency.
The Harris County office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management will coordinate with the local news outlets before and during the actual emergency. The Harris County Recovery Network is here to serve you in the in the weeks, months and even years beyond the immediate emergency. Meanwhile, we hope you take the time to review this information from lessons learned after past emergencies.
