NC Housing Finance Agency Foreclosure Prevention Fund
NC homeowners who are struggling to make their mortgage payments due to job loss or other no fault, temporary financial hardship can apply for assistance through the Mortgage Payment Program, part of the NC Housing Finance Agency’s Foreclosure Prevention Fund.
As of October 18th, the Mortgage Payment Program is now available in 17 pilot North Carolina counties and will expand statewide on December 1st, 2010.
