Fraud

Any person or entity (including its employees and affiliates) that enters into an agreement with the Hall County ERAP that witnesses, discovers evidence of, receives a report from another source, or has other reasonable basis to suspect that fraud, misuse of funds or embezzlement has occurred must immediately make a report through the following channels: 

  • Van Stephens, vstephens@hallcounty.org or call 770-535-8288 
  • The Treasury Office of Inspector General hotline at 800-359-3898 

An individual filing a complaint may request the complaint to be handled confidentially if they believe disclosing their identity may create a hardship or place them in danger. If confidentiality is elected, it is suggested but not required to provide as much contact information as they are comfortable if additional details are needed. Filing an anonymous complaint may limit the ability of conducting a complete investigation.

Mortgage Assistance

The U.S. Treasury Department allocated funding to states and territories through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) was established to mitigate financial hardships associated with the coronavirus pandemic by providing funds for the purpose of preventing homeowner mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities, and displacements of homeowners experiencing financial hardships after January 21, 2020.  Georgia Department of Community Affairs is administering the Home Mortgage Assistance. Georgia’s allocation was $354M. Those wanting to apply for the mortgage assistance program need to sign up on the form on the DCA website at:
