A state mortgage help program means 370 homeowners in Deschutes County will get some federal assistance. The money comes from the U.S. Treasury. Oregon got the money because we're one of 17 of the hardest hit states in the country. Selef Sprague with NeighborImpact that administered the program, says more than a thousand applied but only around 370 will actually get help. “We didn't get the demand we originally thought we would get. Deschutes county had 370 slots, so we are barely going to meet that amount or barely surpass that amount. So there's a good chance to all the people or most of the people will be approved through the program.” Sprague says because the program required a lot of paper work and documentation, many applicants got frustrated with the process and dropped out.
