Mortgage HelpIn an effort to better educate consumers about the options available to help prevent foreclosure and resolve mortgage debt, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has launched a new campaign. The National Mortgage Settlement outreach project is designed to be a one-stop shop for anyone suffering with mortgage debt and offers a brochure summarizing the programs available to help.

In A Nutshell

The  ”Mortgage Assistance Guide” is the core of HUD’s new campaign. It sums up every program available by the government, as well as lender-based options the homeowner can pursue for help. Some of the options covered are:

  • Government-based programs like Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which offer foreclosure alternatives through loan modifications or refinancing.
  • State programs such as the “Hardest Hit Fund”, which offers mortgage payment assistance for unemployed or the underemployed in certain areas.
  • Lender-based options such as loan modifications, refinancing, short sales or deed in lieu.

Making such an important decision is better served with help from a professional that the brochure also provides a decision tree to help homeowner evaluate their  next step. The brochure also encourages homeowners to seek mortgage debt counseling or help from a foreclosure attorney to review their case.
