Keeping Hoosiers in their homes – that’s the goal of Indiana’s Hardest Hit Fund.
Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann, R-Indiana, announced the expansion of the program Wednesday afternoon.
New eligibility criteria mean under-employed, sick and veteran homeowners can get some relief from foreclosure proceedings.
Homeowners can also receive up to $30,000 in assistance, help obtaining a short sale and access to financial literary courses.
“We all know that our homes are much more than four walls and a door. It’s where our memories are made, where our hearts go to rest. When foreclosure happens, communities suffer,” said Ellspermann.
Officials estimate the new guidelines and resources will help 10,000 Hoosier homeowners.
