The Librarians' Internet Index listed a helpful site on their latest "New This Week" issue. The website is located in the Housing section of HUD webpage. The "Help for Homeowners Facing
the Loss of Their Home" website is designed to help clients who are being laid off or are facing unemployment or unable to make the payments for their house.
"The Department of Housing and Urban Development/Federal Housing Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Labor and the mortgage industry have worked together to produce important basic information – – and key links to local groups and organizations – – that can help you get through difficult times without losing your home.", reads the front page of the site.
Under different categories like "Contact Your Lender NOW!", "Talk To A Housing Counseling Agency", "Prioritize Your Debts" or "Explore Loan Workout Solutions" the website is trying to answer the most important questions for customers facing foreclosure on their homes.
Considering what is happening now with the housing market, this page might come very handy for some library customers.
