The clock is ticking for distressed homeowners to apply for the State of Oregon’s Mortgage Payment Assistance (MPA) program. Oregon Housing and Community Services have been hard at work at getting the program up and running. The MPA will help unemployed or financially distressed homeowners pay their mortgage payments for up to one year or a maximum of $20,000 in total assistance.
To apply, eligible homeowners must submit an MPA Application online and follow up with all required documents by the January 14, 2011 deadline. After that time, applicants will be drawn randomly from the pool of eligible applicants. The MPA Application and related information are available online at OregonHomeownerHelp.org.
In Multnomah County, staff and volunteers from Hacienda CDC are available to help homeowners from learn about and apply for the program. For more information, call 503-961-6432.
