On behalf of the Save Our Homes Coalition, I am contacting you today to ask for your help in preventing the massive wave of foreclosures that are expected to occur in the new year.
8.1% of Pennsylvanians (over 1 million households) are already delinquent on their mortgage payments. Steep cuts in unemployment benefits and foreclosure relief programs are coming. Pandemic Mortgage Assistance has ended, even though the pandemic has not, and it is unclear if any future assistance will be available. Because of this, the Save Our Homes Coalition is working with numerous partners throughout the state to put pressure on the legislature to increase funding for the Homeowner’s Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (HEMAP), a program we feel is one of very few solutions available to save these homes. Check the attached document.
If you are able to join this campaign to help Pennsylvania families keep their homes, please join us virtually on Wednesday, December 9th at 1 PM, to meet with other partner organizations and discuss campaign strategy: Sign up for the zoom meeting at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qf-upqTspG9VhY_WZn7vl4SQJxCAGjLlg
Let’s try to avoid going back to the foreclosure crisis of the Great Recession.
