Housing/Mortgages Services


District’s HomeSaver Program :

 

In February 2010, the Obama Administration announced $1.5 billion in Housing Finance Agency Innovation Fund dollars for the US Treasury’s Hardest-Hit Fund (HHF). Through the federally funded initiative, state housing finance agencies received funding in support of innovative programs intended to stabilize the local housing markets and help families avoid foreclosure.

 

DC Open Doors : 

 

Every day you work hard to make a better life for yourself and your family. Homeownership is still one of the best ways to invest in your future and improve your quality of life. In fact, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Housing Commission notes that homeownership can “produce powerful economic, social, and civic benefits that serve the individual homeowner, the larger community, and the nation.” Mortgage interest rates continue at historic lows and there is no better time to purchase a home in Washington, DC, one of the greatest American cities.

 

Foreclose Mediation Program for Homeowners :

The District of Columbia’s Foreclosure Mediation Program (FMP) was created to address the foreclosure crisis in the District of Columbia. The Program provides homeowners and lenders with an opportunity to meet face-to-face to discuss alternatives to foreclosure.
