Foreclosure Resources Available Now!
The State of Oregon and HomeSource of NeighborImpact have announced important resources to help Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook County homeowners at risk of foreclosure. A new website, OregonHomeownerSupport.gov provides information about foreclosure prevention counseling, legal assistance and other programs for the tens of thousands of distressed homeowners in Oregon who remain at risk of losing their homes. The website is funded through Oregon’s share of a National Mortgage Settlement with five of the nation’s largest loan servicers. The Oregon Legislature appropriated nearly $4 million of this Settlement to Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) for implementing programs that support foreclosure prevention, including the new Foreclosure Avoidance Mediation Program. The largest component of the OHCS appropriation was dedicated to expanding the network of trained foreclosure prevention counselors across the state.
