Are you unemployed and need help paying your mortgage?
Have you heard about Building the Bridge to Recovery?
Under this program, the Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network is offering homeowners, who are unemployed through no fault of their own, assistance in paying their mortgages and related expenses while they seek new employment.
To qualify for the program, an applicant must be:
• A homeowner, owning only one home and currently residing in that home,
• Currently an unemployment insurance recipient or a re-employed worker who was an unemployment insurance recipient within the past 12 months, and
• A participant of approved training, education, or volunteer work.
Applicants must also:
• Agree to pay a portion of their monthly income toward their mortgage and
• Meet income eligibility based on county of residence.
To see additional eligibility requirements, visit www.877GetHope.org. By applying online, you’ll begin working with an Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network specialist who will perform an assessment to determine your eligibility. If eligible, applicants must participate in one of three areas: approved training, education, or volunteer work.
Homeowners not eligible for Building the Bridge to Recovery may still receive free foreclosure-prevention assistance from the state of Indiana. So take the first step today by setting up a profile and applying online at www.877GetHope.org!
