Oklahoma HAF Grant Saves Sherry's Home
Sherry's family business took a hard hit during the height of the pandemic. The Homeowner Assistance Fund gave the boost needed to get past the financial setback.
Homeowner Assistance Fund Lifts Financial Burden
For more than a decade, Sherry has decorated her home with bold, vibrant colors. A hot pink couch serves as a focal point in her cheerful living room.
In the height of the pandemic, things didn't look so bright. Sherry worried she and her husband, Chris, might lose their home.
"My husband installs and services equipment for many of the local bars across the state," said Sherry. "The pandemic greatly reduced his business."
While business stalled, housing expenses continued to mount. Sherry used the Oklahoma Homeowner Assistance Fund to pay past-due property taxes.
"Thanks to this program and the wonderful staff we are able to save our home and get past this setback," said Sherry.
Applying for the Homeowner Assistance Fund was easy and painless, Sherry said. She appreciated the customer service she received.
"The people running this program kept me up to date on the application. I was always able to talk to a real person when I called," she said. "And the website is user-friendly."
Sherry is grateful she can sleep at night knowing "we will be able to recover from this financial loss that has touched so many."
