The Delaware State Housing Authority, in partnership with five local housing counseling agencies, is hosting “Keeping Your Home Afloat”, a statewide foreclosure prevention open house, from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 22. Attendees will learn how the Making Home Affordable Program may be able to help them reduce the amount they owe on their mortgage. Homeowners who owe more than their homes are worth, are especially encouraged to come get more information about the MHA Program’s Principal Reduction Alternative.
“Keeping Your Home Afloat” is part of the Making Home Affordable Outreach and Intake Project, a collaborative effort between DSHA and First State Community Action Agency, Housing Opportunities of Northern Delaware, Interfaith Community Housing of Delaware, NCALL Research, and the YWCA Center for Homeownership. Through this statewide network of service providers, homeowners seeking assistance with resolving or preventing a mortgage delinquency can find the resources they need while staying close to home.
The session will be held at the Dover Public Library, 35 E. Loockerman St., Dover.
Housing counselors certified in foreclosure prevention and mortgage default counseling will be on hand to answer questions about the Making Home Affordable Program Principal Reduction Alternative, and other relief options, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served throughout the evening.
