Money Management International Helps Struggling Homeowners Apply for MHA Program

MORRISTOWN, NJ, September 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Money Management International (MMI) is participating in a nationwide partnership to help families struggling with their mortgage payments apply for help from the Federal government’s Making Home Affordable Program (MHA). The MHA program is an important part of the Obama administration’s comprehensive plan to help homeowners get mortgage relief and avoid foreclosure.

More than one million homeowners nationwide have already benefited from the MHA program, but hundreds of thousands of additional families are still eligible for help. MMI, a HUD-approved housing counseling agency, is working in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, NeighborWorks America and more than 700 housing counseling agencies across the country to help homeowners apply for help through the program free-of-charge.

Homeowners struggling to make their mortgage payments are encouraged to make an appointment with an MMI housing counselor to learn more about their mortgage relief options and the process for applying for aid through the MHA program.
