Mortgage Assistance Event This Friday and Saturday
HONOLULU – The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Division of Financial Institutions is hosting a Mortgage Assistance Event to provide support for homeowners and business owners that have been impacted by the Maui wildfires.
The event will be on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa (200 Nohea Kai Drive, Lāhainā, Hawaiʻi 96761) in the Monarchy Ballrooms 1 and 2—formerly the site of the American Red Cross Family Assistance Center.
The purpose of the Mortgage Assistance Event is to provide an opportunity for borrowers to receive in-person assistance and discuss all available options with their financial institutions or mortgage servicers. Community and federal housing counselors and organizations will also be accessible to provide further guidance on other options for homeowners.
“We believe the face-to-face interaction with our banks and servicers will provide useful information as we work toward recovery,” says Iris Ikeda, Hawaiʻi Banking Commissioner. “This event will provide homeowners with options before the 90-day forbearance period expires in December 2023.”
