Help is on the way for people in the Capital Region who may be at risk of losing their homes due to the pandemic.

The state’s Homeowner Assistance Fund kicks off next Monday.

It provides up to $539 million to help homeowners across the state who are behind on mortgage payments, property taxes, water or sewer bills.

The help is especially timely, with the state’s foreclosure moratorium due to expire January 15.
