NC Foreclosure Help - NC Foreclosure Prevention Fund

NC Foreclosure Help - NC Foreclosure Prevention Fund
If you're a resident of North Carolina and are unemployed or facing a financial hardship and are at risk of falling behind on your mortgage payment or have already fell behind on it, you may qualify for help from the NC Foreclosure Prevention Fund.

If you qualify for these zero interest loans, you may be able to receive up to $36,000 for up to 36 months to help you pay your mortgage.  These loans are available in our area, which includes Alexander, Catawba, Caldwell and Burke counties.

This is being offered by N.C. Housing Finance Agency in partnership with HUD-certified counseling agencies statewide.  The contact for this area is the Western Piedmont Council of Governments.
You may be eligible for help if you:
  • are unemployed or are earning less than you have in the past, or
  • are facing a temporary financial hardship (for example, a divorce, serious illness, or death of a co-signor). To be eligible, you must also:
  • need assistance with payments for your principal residence, which must be located in North Carolina,
  • have satisfactory mortgage payment history prior to your job loss or financial hardship, and
  • be a legal resident of the United States.
If you need help, it's best to contact the counseling agency as soon as possible to determine if you qualify.
