NEXT WBNA GENERAL MEETING, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1 AT 6PM (NOTE 6PM START TIME), 1560 WESTMINSTER STREET

Hardest Hit Fund Rhode Island (HHFRI) in cooperation with Mayor Angel Taveras, Senator Paul V. Jabour, Representative Michael A. Tarro and Representative Anastasia P. Williams to host on Nov. 1 an informational meeting on foreclosure-prevention funds at West Broadway West Broadway Neighborhood Association, WBNA

 Unemployed homeowners should call 401-277-1500 for an appointment to begin the HHFRI application process

 Providence (Oct. 25, 2011) – A free informational public meeting on the foreclosure-prevention program Hardest Hit Fund Rhode Island (HHFRI) will be held on Tuesday, November 1, at 6 p.m. at West Broadway Neighborhood Association, WBNA,

1560 Westminster St., Providence.

 Mayor Angel Taveras, Senator Paul V. Jabour (District 5, Providence), Representative Michael A. Tarro (District 8, Providence) and Representative Anastasia P. Williams (District 9, Providence) are urging homeowners to attend the meeting as the latest changes to HHFRI have made it easier for those Rhode Islanders having difficulty making mortgage payments to get assistance from HHFRI, a service of Rhode Island Housing.

Homeowners who are unemployed, and believe they may qualify can now contact the HHFRI Center, 401-277-1500, directly to get an appointment to begin the HHFRI application process. Homeowners with hardships other than unemployment will continue to seek out assistance from a HUD approved and HHFRI certified counseling agency such as the Rhode Island Housing HelpCenter, 401-457-1130.

 

“HHFRI is and will bring relief to struggling Rhode Islanders and keep them in their homes," said Richard Godfrey, executive director of Rhode Island Housing. “The purpose of this program is to prevent foreclosures and stabilize the housing market by helping homeowners make mortgage payments.”

 

Struggling homeowners may qualify for this program if they have a documented financial hardship such as a sudden loss of a job, underemployment, unforeseen medical expenses, and disability of a family’s key wage-earner or costly home repairs as a result of the flooding in Rhode Island during the spring of 2010. Also, members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have experienced a drop in income due to deployment are qualified for assistance. (This applies to all personnel in regular and reserve components of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.)

For more information on HHFRI and the list of all community meetings, visit: www.HHFRI.org; email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ; or call: 401-277-1500.

The U.S. Treasury has made available to Rhode Islanders $80 million to help those at risk of losing their homes. Rhode Island Housing has been designated by the Treasury to oversee the funds. The agency will be processing, approving and administering the submissions from lenders, servicers and specially trained HHFRI certified counselors
