- Mortgage Payments: Homeowners, depending on their situation, should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify to make reduced payments or be granted a complete pause in payments.
- Student Loans: All federally held loans will automatically have an interest rate set to 0% for at least 60 days. Call/email your lender and request an administrative forbearance due to COVID-19. This will allow borrowers to temporarily stop their payments without worrying about accruing interest.

The Bulloch County VOAD (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster) came out of the local post-Hurricane Matthew disaster efforts in the fall of 2016. Local community leaders came together to work on local disaster relief efforts if something were to happen again. It takes a village and these community leaders give time and energy to make sure the citizens of Bulloch County are taken care of and provided the resources in time of disaster.
How to Get Involved...
If you would like to volunteer in times of need and during disaster relief efforts, please let us know by contacting us.
