The bill provides $3 billion to allow homeowners facing a temporary loss in income due to unemployment, underemployment or medical condition to receive low-interest loans for up to 24 months to assist in their monthly mortgage payment. Homeowners must be at least 3 months behind on their mortgage payments and have received a notice stating that the holder of the mortgage intends to foreclose.
The bill also establishes $1 billion for NSP3 to provide grants to eligible entities to purchase and redevelop foreclosed and abandoned properties. The proposed third round of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program uses the NSP2 version of the program, but for a few changes.
