POJHA Homeowner Assistance Fund
The Homeowner Assistant Fund (HAF) authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act, provides $9.961 billion to support homeowners facing financial hardship associated with COVID-19. HAF funds were distributed to states, U.S. Territories, and Indian Tribes.
In order for eligible entities to receive its allocation, an eligible entity must develope and submit a plan for its use of HAF funding. The HAF plan shall describe in detail the needs of homeowners within their relevant jurisdiction, the design of each program the eligible entity proposes to implement using HAF funds, performance goals, and information regarding the eligible entity's readiness to implement the programs.
U.S. Department of Treasury will access the eligible entity's HAF plan on several factors for approval. Treasury may approve a HAF plan in whole or in part. The eligible entity will be notified of approval status and disbursement schedule for purposes of the approved portions of the plan.

The Pueblo of Jemez Housing Authority presented its Homeowner Assistance Fund plan to the Pueblo of Jemez Tribal Council on May 17, 2023. The Pueblo of Jemez Tribal Council approved Tribal Council Resolution #2023-08 Approval for the Pueblo of Jemez Housing Authority Homeowner Assistance Fund Plan.
The Pueblo of Jemez Housing Authority plans to assist eligible participants with utility assistance and home repair to prevent displacement, but each program plans to limit repairs to certain areas of the home to ensure that there is no overlap or duplication of assistance.
