In March of 2021, Congress passed The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) is one component of ARPA being administered by the United States Department of Treasury. KIHA applied for HAF funds and must now submit a HAF Plan (by September 30, 2021) demonstrating how those funds will be used to benefit homeowners in Kodiak. If you are a homeowner experiencing financial hardship, stay tuned because this is the program for you.
