Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program

The Obama Administration launched the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program (EHLP) on June 20th. EHLP will provide emergency mortgage relief to homeowners who are unemployed or underemployed and at risk of foreclosure. EHLP was authorized by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
$61,036,001 in funding is available for EHLP in Massachusetts. It is estimated that 1,260 Commonwealth homeowners will be assisted by this program. Eligible homeowners must apply to EHLP counseling agencies by July 22, 2011.
Please visit the website of the Citizens' Housing and Planning Association to learn more about approved counseling agencies, homeowner eligibility, and additional program rules.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development also has helpful information on EHLP.
