ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

We have received an additional 100 applications for the month of January 2024 and we will not be accepting additional applications until late-February. The Navajo HAF program budget restricts the number of applications we can accept and process monthly. The program will run through September 2026, which will allow an opportunity to apply for assistance each month. We appreciate your patience as we continue to exercise responsible stewardship of these public funds.

Why is the Navajo Homeowner Assistance Fund only available Off Reservation?

The Navajo Homeowner Assistance Fund is funded with federal stimulus funds that must be deployed consistent with the time limits established. Any Navajo Homeowner Assistance Funds not deployed by September 30, 2026 must be returned to the US Treasury. President Dr. Buu Nygren has committed to deploy all Navajo Homeowner Assistance Funds to eligible Navajo households prior to the deadline. Because many more enrolled members of the Navajo Nation own homes off the reservation as opposed to on the reservation and because most Navajo members living off reservation are not typically able to access services from the Navajo tribal government, a decision was made to prioritize Navajo households who are homeowners living off the Navajo Nation.

Each of the following Navajo Homeowner Assistance Fund programs has varying qualification requirements. Submit your contact information and an NCC staff person will call you to review the option(s) that are best for you.

Monthly Mortgage Payment Assistance (maximum assistance $72,000)

This Assistance Fund will benefit Navajo homeowners who are at risk of payment delinquency or foreclosure due to a loss of household income. It will provide monthly mortgage assistance to eligible households, not to exceed a maximum term of 24 months with up to $3,000 in monthly mortgage assistance. The monthly mortgage assistance amount will vary on a case-by-case basis.

Mortgage Reinstatement Assistance (maximum assistance $50,000)

This Assistance Fund will benefit Navajo homeowners who are in active forbearance, delinquency, or default status and at risk of losing their homes. It provides financial assistance to allow a homeowner to reinstate a mortgage or to pay other housing-related costs related to a period of forbearance, delinquency, or default.

Mortgage Principal Reduction Assistance (maximum assistance $100,000)

This Assistance Fund will benefit Navajo homeowners who, due to extreme property valuation changes, find the Fair Market Value of their home is less than the price at which the homeowner purchased the home and which may result in a financial loss through the erosion of equity.

Home Repair Assistance (loan) – (maximum assistance $100,000)

This Assistance Fund will benefit Navajo homeowners who require significant home repairs or additions without which the safety, reliability and sufficiency of housing is at risk. It will prevent homeowner displacement by providing funds for home repairs to a existing primary residence and to maintain the habitability of a home, including the
reasonable addition of habitable space to alleviate overcrowding, or assistance to enable households to receive clear title to their properties.

Clear Title Assistance (maximum assistance $30,000)

Any household with an outstanding mortgage balance under $30,000 will be eligible for one-time, non-recourse grant assistance to pay off the existing mortgage balance on a primary residence and receive clear title to the residence. If the property has more than one mortgage lien, then the combined, outstanding mortgage balances must be under $30,000 to qualify for this assistance.

THE NAVAJO NATION NEEDS FOSTER PARENTS!!!!!

Why? Children who are victims of abuse or neglect require protection and we are here to serve them. We need caring and nurturing families who are willing to open their homes and hearts to these children. Foster care is intended to be temporary care that a family provides with the understanding that the child will be reunited with their birth family. But in some cases, the children end up needing long-term care, guardianship or adoption. 

What are the requirements?

  • Navajo Nation Foster Parent Application

  • Background checks- State, FBI, Navajo Nation- all family members 18 and older

  • CPS Clearances-Past 10 years

  • Stable income that meets your current household needs

  • Physical Exam- all family members 18 and older

  • Three references from non-relatives

  • Home Safety Survey and Environmental Health Inspection

  • Home Study/interview with all family members

  • Pre-placement/ parenting skills training (10 hours) free

  • Food Handlers, First aid, and CPR certification

  • Copies of identifying documents for the records: IDs, birth certification, social security cards, CIB, marriage license, proof of insurance

FOSTER PARENTING IS VOLUNTEERING, BUT THE NAVAJO NATION DOES PROVIDE COST-OF-CARE REIMBURSEMENTS TO LICENSED FOSTER PARENTS ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR EACH CHILD IN THE FOSTER HOME.
