General Information
Description of ServiceThe Department of Defense's Homeowners Assistance Program provides financial assistance to service members and certain DoD civilian homeowners who suffer financial loss on the sale of their primary residences. HAP consists of BRAC Impacted Personnel or Wounded, Injured, or Ill and Surviving Spouse applicants. At this time, applications are only being accepted from Wounded, Injured, or Ill and Surviving Spouse applicants.

If an applicant is eligible under the Wounded, Injured, and Ill or Surviving Spouse categories and money is available, HAP may provide financial assistance under one of the following three scenarios: Private Sale, Government Acquisition, or Foreclosure:
  • Private Sale: Benefit amount is the difference between 95% of the home’s prior fair market value and the selling price. HAP may also reimburse the applicant for normal and customary seller’s closing costs;
  • Government Acquisition: Benefit amount is the greater of 90% of the home’s prior fair market value OR the mortgage(s) payoff amount;
  • Foreclosure: Benefit is paid to the lien holder for legally enforceable liabilities.
