Reverse Mortgage Program
The Florida HHF Elderly Mortgage Assistance Program (ELMORE) is designed to assist seniors who are in arrears on their reverse mortgage (also known as a HECM—home equity conversion mortgage) by providing up to $25,000 to pay past due and future property charges, so that they may avoid foreclosure and can stay in their homes.
Florida homeowners with a reverse mortgage may apply for the Florida ELMORE Program through the toll-free ELMORE Application and Information Line at 1-(800) 601-3534. A live HECM-certified ELMORE advisor will assist applicants with the process. The ELMORE website, www.FloridaELMORE.org, contains important information regarding the program, including detailed eligibility criteria and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs).
