Beginning in February, OnTrack Financial Education & Counseling will offer local information sessions to help people determine if they are eligible for mortgage payment assistance from the N.C. Foreclosure Prevention Loan Program.
The N.C. Foreclosure Prevention Fund makes mortgage payments for qualified unemployed workers, including returning veterans, while they look for jobs or complete job training. The program is offered statewide by the N.C. Housing Finance Agency (NCHFA) and funded by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. On- Track Financial Education & Counseling (OnTrack WNC) is NCHFA’S program partner responsible for helping consumers in Western North Carolina.
Statewide this foreclosure prevention effort has helped 15,000 North Carolinians who lost jobs. On- Track WNC has helped over 600 families in western NC obtain almost $13 million dollars worth of assistance.
