Brightwood DC House for saleDid you know that as a Unemployed DC Homeowner,there is help for you? Well there is. Matter of fact NCRC's Housing Counseling Network has joined DC program to provide foreclosure prevention counseling to DC unemployed homeowners. Last year many people don't know that the National Community Reinvestment Coalition's Housing Counseling Network (NCRC HCN) which is a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certified housing counseling organization announced that it will provide housing counseling under the District of Columbia Housing Finance Agency's (DCHFA) Home save Program. The HomeSaver program is aimed towards DC homeowners who have experienced involuntary job loss and subsequently facing foreclosure.

The DCHFA program provides foreclosure prevention to an estimated 1,000 unemployed DC homeowners and is funded by the $1.5 billion dollar Hardest Hit Fund Initiative created by the Obama Administration. This is great for some DC unemployed homeowners who are experiencing financial difficulty. Hopefully with the help of this program it will give unemployed homeowners enough time to get back on their feet and be able to move on with their lives.

So how can unemployed DC residents seek assistance? First they should call NCRC's Housing Counseling Network at 202-383-7702. Once you call them you want to know what is the basic eligibilty requirements to receive assistance under this program? As a District of Columbia homeowner(s) you have to
