Happy Monday! Delivering a special BONUS episode, in partnership with Fannie Mae, providing timely advice and support for struggling homeowners and renters impacted financially by COVID-19. The pandemic has hurt so many millions of Americans from being able to pay their bills, including their housing payments. It’s been especially challenging for people of color who have been disproportionately impacted economically. Joining to provide some solutions is Danielle McCoy, Vice President and Fair Lending Officer at Fannie Mae. She and Farnoosh discuss Fannie Mae's #HeretoHelp education effort, the ins and outs of forbearance, and why it might be a real option for homeowners right now. They also tackle some of the myths surrounding forbearance and how it impacts one's credit. Also: important advice for renters that may need some financial assistance right now, how to know if you can qualify for free financial counseling and the best ways to negotiate with your landlord.

Please note, since the recording of this podcast the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended its temporary halt in residential evictions order through June 30, 2021.
