Did you know about the Homeowners Assistance Program (HAP)?


The Homeowners Assistance Program (HAP) is authorized by Section 1013 of the Demonstration Cities and Metropolitan Development Act of 1966, as amended. The Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to provide financial aid to eligible military (including Coast Guard), civilian, certain overseas employees, and non-appropriated fund employee homeowners who have served or have been employed at or near military installations which the Department of Defense (DoD) has ordered to be closed or whose operations have been significantly reduced and where real estate values have declined because of the announced closure or realignment. Section 1001 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 expanded the HAP authority to authorize the Secretary of Defense to provide financial aid to: members of the Armed Forces (30% or greater disability) who incur a wound, injury, or illness in the line of duty during a deployment in support of the Armed Forces on or after September 11, 2001; wounded DoD and Coast Guard civilian homeowners reassigned in furtherance of medical treatment or rehabilitation or due to medical retirement in connection with a disability incurred in the performance of his or her duties during a forward deployment occurring on or after September 11, 2001 in support of the Armed Forces; and surviving spouses of fallen warriors who move within two years of the death of such employee or member.

How will Sequestration affect your military family?

Like many military spouses and families, you may want to know how sequestration will impact your military family in detail, but can't seem to get anything more than, "It's a bad idea." You continue to hear about the billions of dollars to be cut from the DoD budget and how that will negatively impact the readiness of our armed forces in general. Yet, what remains unclear to you is the direct impact sequestration will have on your military family.

For example:

Will sequestration impact the CDC and child care? If so, how?
