When you get behind on your mortgage, the right mortgage assistance program can be a big part of getting back on track.
But it’s not the only piece of the puzzle. You also have access to lots of counseling, information, and outside help. Following are just a few resources that can help you at little or no cost.
The United States Department Of Housing And Urban Development (HUD) has trained housing counselors who can talk through your situation and options with you. They’re ready to help with your questions about credit, foreclosure, rentals, and much more. Find a HUD counselor here.
