Hardest Hit Program Deadline is Today!

If you were planning on applying to the state’s Hardest Hit Program for mortgage assistance, you’d better hurry up.  The deadline is today.

When the program started in 2011, eligible homeowners could qualify for up to $25,000 in assistance, although that number was increased to $35,000 earlier this year.  Nearly 15,000 people have applied, and almost 60% of those who applied received some assistance.  Nearly $122 million were paid out.  The good news is that most homeowners who qualified and received assistance continued to own their homes 6 months later.

Based on the information we have now, it appears the program was successful.  For more information and to see if you might qualify, click here.  If you do apply, act quick.  The deadline is today, September 30, 2013.
