Mesa is accepting applications for the Mortgage Assistance — Foreclosure Prevention Program.

To be eligible, an applicant must be a city of Mesa resident for at least three months, be at or below 80% of the household median income and have pending foreclosure due to financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Documentation needed includes:

  • Income and asset information for all household members;
