As millions of Americans face continued hardship from the COVID-19 pandemic, President Biden has extended the foreclosure moratorium for federally backed mortgages from March 31, 2021 to June 30, 2021. He has also extended the mortgage payment forbearance enrollment window until June 30, 2021 for borrowers who wish to request a forbearance. This is the second time President Biden has extended the ban, after having signed an executive order on his first day in office pushing the original January 31, 2021 deadline to the end of March.
There are 11 million federally backed government mortgages nationwide, of which approximately 2.7 million homeowners are currently in a COVID forbearance.
