Help for Homeowners Behind on Mortgage

Posted by Hopeton on July 5, 2011

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a new program to help homeowners prevent foreclosure. The Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program (EHLP) provides mortgage payment assistance to eligible homeowners who have lost a job or are underemployed due to the economy or a medical condition resulting in a drop in income of at least 15%.

The mortgage assistance covers past-due mortgage payments, as well as a portion of the homeowner’s mortgage payment for up to 24 months (up to $50,000). The application deadline is July 22, 2011.

Interested homeowners can find more information by visiting or by calling the toll-free EHLP hotline at 855-346-3345.
