Virginia Bankers Celebrate American Housing Month in June
The VBA and bankers across Virginia are celebrating American Housing Month this month, highlighting banks' commitment to helping customers reach their housing goals. This month, and all year, that commitment goes beyond lending to include offering assistance for people struggling to pay for their home and educating consumers on their housing options. There are a number of free resources available to provide housing choices and information to customers, particularly during a time when many are facing significant financial challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic. Resources include:
- Tools and information from the ABA Foundation to help banks educate consumers on their housing options
- Housing communications tools for bankers, including a social media toolkit and customizable press release
- Consumer resources on money management, including tips for accessing coronavirus housing relief
- Information on issues and regulations affecting the housing market, including COVID-19-related news
You can also access Stay Home Virginia, which includes housing-related resources for renters, homeowners, landlords and homeless shelters.
