Tenants across the country participated in a rent strike last week, but that inability to make April’s monthly house payment is plaguing homeowners too. 

The federal government is trying to help, with new guidelines for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae home loans, along with others. Joining Idaho Matters today is Chuck Kracht, director of loan servicing at the Idaho Housing and Finance Association, to talk about what the state is doing to help homeowners with the burden of mortgage during the coronavirus pandemic.  

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.

 

Idaho Matters is working on a story about how families are dealing with school closures during the coronavirus outbreak. Parents: What do your days look like now? Are you creating structure, or are you letting your kids have an extended spring break? Kids: What do you like about being at home, and what do you miss about school and being with your friends? Using your smartphone, please send us a voice memo with your family. Tell us about your daily routine, or about what your’e doing to stay distracted or learning. Send the voice memo to idahomatters@boisestate.edu. We might use your message in an upcoming show.
