Coronavirus Financial Impact Loan

HFLA can give you a helping hand and immediate financial relief in the form of an interest-free loan. It is not a handout but a way to guide you through a crisis or help you meet a financial obligation. Personal loans of up to $5,000 can offset an emergency, support you through a life change, finance your education or even help you celebrate a joyous occasion. In the past, our loans have assisted with medical and dental expenses, car and housing repairs, life-cycle events, early childhood and continuing adult education, divorce, immigration costs and mortgage and rental costs. As with all of our loans, you must meet borrowing requirements before participating in the Personal Loan Program.

HFLA is also helping our community meet the challenges of the coronavirus crisis. If you need help with expenses relating to the pandemic, such as lost wages due to being unable to go to work, childcare costs due to school closures, related medical expenses and more, HLFA can provide you with an emergency loan of up to $3,000. Repayments will begin on the 1st or the 15th of the month, six months after the loan is initiated.
