The Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program (EHLP)

THE EHLP HOMEOWNER APPLICATION PROCESS HAS CLOSED.

EHLP HELP Foreclosure Consumers
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provided $1 billion to the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development to implement the Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program (EHLP). HUD has contracted with NeighborWorks America to administer programmatic functions.

The program is designed to provide mortgage payment relief to eligible homeowners experiencing a drop in income of at least 15 percent, directly resulting from involuntary unemployment or underemployment due to adverse economic conditions and/or a medical emergency. The mortgage relief covers past-due mortgage payments, as well as a portion of the homeowner’s mortgage payment for up to 24 months (up to $50,000).

The deadline for The Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program (EHLP) has passed. Homeowners seeking foreclosure mitigation assistance should speak with a housing counselor to identify all foreclosure prevention options available. To locate a counselor serving your community or region, go to FindaForeclosureCounselor.org.
