Bucks County Grant to Help Cover Delinquent Mortgages Resulting from COVID-19 | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

A new grant program will pay delinquent mortgages for qualifying individuals and families in Bucks County who have experienced reduced income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Credit Counseling Center’s Foreclosure Counseling Program received a grant from Bucks County Department of Housing and Community Development to provide foreclosure counseling services and financial assistance for those struggling with mortgage payments because of the pandemic. While funds last, the grant will pay the delinquent mortgage amount for individuals who meet the unemployment, income, mortgage, property and eligibility requirements.

“We are pleased to be administrating this mortgage relief to our neighbors who need it most,” said Joan Reading MSW, Credit Counseling Center’s Executive Director. “It will certainly prevent some families from going into foreclosure, and our counselors will help them establish a plan to get on track for financial recovery from COVID-19.”
