Fannie Mae Renters Resource Finder
If you’re a renter facing financial challenges as a result of COVID-19, a natural disaster, or other difficulties, we’re here to help. Use our Renters Resource Finder to learn what kinds of support may be available, including:
- Access to personal assistance from HUD-approved housing counselors
- Information on Federal and state housing assistance and other programs
- Tips on communicating with your landlord, and more
If the Renters Resource Finder confirms that Fannie Mae financed the apartment complex where you live, you may also be eligible for COVID-19-related tenant protections. Please reach out to your landlord or property manager to determine if these protections are applicable to you. If your landlord or property owner has received payment relief on the financing we provided (this is known as forbearance), these protections could include:
- Protection from eviction solely for failure to pay your rent
- At least a 30-day notice to vacate your rental unit
- A suspension of late fees or penalties for nonpayment of rent
- Flexibility to repay back-rent over time, and not in a lump sum
To better understand protections and assistance that may be available to you—whether or not Fannie Mae financed the apartment complex where you live—please visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Protections for Renters page
To use the Renters Resource Finder, enter the main address of your apartment or rental complex—usually the leasing office address.
If you don’t know the main address of your rental complex, try entering the address of your rental unit. Addresses that don’t exactly match Fannie Mae records may return inaccurate results.
