There’s only one more week to apply for federal funds to help pay your mortgage. NeighborImpact is administering the program locally. Housing Director Laura Fritz says in Deschutes County they've had more than 700 people apply, for half that number of spots. “It had the highest number of slots. 370 households will get mortgage payments relief because Deschutes County has been hard hit with our unemployment, foreclosure and drop in housing prices and so on.” The deadline to apply is next Friday, January 14th. To apply, go to: www.OregonHomeownerhelp.org. And you must meet with NeighborImpact staff to go over your application to be considered. Oregon has $220 million federal dollars to help prevent foreclosures in the State.
