Last week more than 200 organizations from across the country signed onto the National Housing Resource Center’s letter to request an extension on the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) which currently has a December 31, 2013 deadline.  With a continued strain on the housing market and elevated unemployment, our recommendation is that the Treasury extend HAMP to help more distressed homeowners.

Read our full letter to U.S. Treasury Department, go to NHRC materials.  We have also circulated the letter to the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, and the CFPB.
