Foreclosure Offense: HUD Launches Program In Six Cities To Help Homeowners Not Yet In Foreclosure

In Miami, Florida, The Miami Herald reports:

  • [A]nother effort to keep borrowers from losing their homes to foreclosure was launched Wednesday by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Called ”Keep Your Home, Know Your Loan,” the campaign includes public service announcements and print materials that will be distributed in six major metropolitan areas where home foreclosures rates are soaring, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Phoenix, and, naturally, Miami.(1)
  • This is an opportunity for us to reach out to people who may not be in foreclosure yet, but could be facing one this year, due to a rate change, the economic downturn, job loss or having their hours cut,” said Armando Fana, director of HUD’s field office in South Florida.
