Mayor Craig A. Moe would like the public to know about an assistance program for mortgage holders.

The Emergency Mortgage Assistance (EMA) will hold a workshop on June 4, 2011 from 9:00am – 1:00pm at the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Headquarters, 100 Community Place, Crownsville, MD 21032. Reservations are required, so please call 410-514-7446 to reserve a space.

The EMA program is designed to assist homeowners who are facing foreclosure due to involuntary unemployment or loss of significant income. If you are 3 - 12 months late on your mortgage and your home is in imminent danger of foreclosure, then the EMA program may be able to help you.

Potential applicants must first go through the Pre-Application Eligibility Checklist to see if you may be eligible. Applicants will be asked to contact an approved Housing Counseling Agency from the list provided. They can assist you in completing an EMA application if you appear eligible, and help you pursue other avenues of assistance if you do not qualify for EMA.

Mayor Moe knows that in these tough economic times, people are trying to keep their heads above water and he hopes that this is one program that can help. For more information, go to https://dhcd.maryland.gov/Residents/Pages/HOPE/MDHope.aspx.
