You should pay your rent if you can!

Do you need assistance paying rent?

You should pay your mortgage if you can!

If you cannot pay your mortgage, call your mortgage servicer and let them know that your employment or income has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most servicers are offering at least a six-month forbearance of mortgage payments, allowing a temporary suspension of payments until homeowners are able to return to work. Foreclosures have been suspended for at least 60 days for government insured mortgages.

The HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton has partnered with Montgomery County to help local homeowners who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Mortgage Assistance Program helps homeowners to catch up on their mortgage and ultimately avoid foreclosure.

Our priority is assisting customers who currently have any utilities disconnected (gas, electric, and/or water). We are still assisting customers who need to reverify their PIPP.

If your water was shut off in 2020:

  • Call your local water department to have your water reconnected.  Your water will not be automatically reconnected – you must call.
  • All reconnection fees will be waived.

If your water was shut off in 2019:

DP&L and Vectren will not disconnect services until further notice.
