Applications for the Homeowners Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (HEMAP) are now being accepted.
The HEMAP program is officially back in business as of today! Thanks to the efforts of many advocates and homeowners the Homeowners Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program has been restored in Pennsylvania. Funding has come from the National Mortgage Settlement which resulted from the law suit by the state Attorney's General against the largest mortgage banks. 90% of the $66 million coming to PA is targeted for HEMAP over the next five years.
To apply you can contact non-profit housing counseling agencies throughout Pennsylvania. Click here to find an agency near you.
