$300M Available To Save Homes From Foreclosure

money Weeks after New Jersey residents responded in high numbers to the announcement of a government foreclosure-prevention program, the amount of money available from the federal government to help with monthly mortgage payments has been more than doubled to $300 million. Major banks have halted foreclosures temporarily in 23 states, including New Jersey, after revelations of so-called rubber-stamp foreclosure procedures, with documents being authorized without proper reviews.

Gov. Chris Christie’s administration announced Sept. 23 that New Jersey would receive $112 million from the federal government for the HMFA’s New Jersey Homekeeper Program.

This second round of funding of $188 million will help meet high demand for the program, said Hollie Gilroy, spokeswoman for the state Department of Community Affairs.
