Emergency Homeowner Loan Program

MAINE - Kennebec Valley Community Action Program, MaineStream Finance of
Penquis, Inc, and Community Concepts, Inc, will be facilitating workshops
throughout the state over the next week for the Emergency Homeowner Loan
Program. The deadline for pre-application submission is Friday, July 22.

The Emergency Homeowner Loan Program (EHLP) is a federal mortgage
assistance program designed to help homeowners who have been unemployed or
underemployed due to the economy and have fallen behind at least 90 days
on their home mortgages. Only 319 households in Maine will ultimately
receive the assistance. The pre-applicant screening process, which
concludes on July 22, will determine whether a household is eligible for
submission into a lottery.

Following the lottery, eligible homeowners will complete a full EHLP
application. If the homeowner cannot provide all of the supporting
documentation, counselors move on to other homeowners on the waiting list
for the program.

Workshops will review the EHLP initiative, homeowner opportunities and
responsibilities and assist homeowners in completing the pre-applicant
screening worksheets.
